Reflection: Student Ownership Cell Organelle Children's Book Project - Section 6: Students in Action - Creating the Cell Organelle Children's Book


Project-based learning puts students in control. Students take ownership of the project and the progress. As the facilitator, I am able to respond to the learning they need and not simply provide a rote lesson. 

In order to gain student ownership, it is important to have a well-crafted entry document. The document must provide students with a project of interest and enough information about the project so they can create a list of Need-to-Knows.
