Reflection: Student Ownership Reflecting on Learning - Section 3: Wrap Up


We completed the Curiosity Project cycle twice this year, once in choice topic in science and once with a choice topic from any field. Students were excited about the process both times and never seemed to get bored following the cycle since the topics were of their own choosing. In fact, I was very ill and missed the final showcase for students' projects. Many parents were concerned that their child did not have the chance to show me their projects. However, one student summed up the essence of this process in her response to her mom, "Don't worry Mom, it doesn't matter that I did not get to show Dr. Gates my final product. After all, it's about the process, not the product and I learned a lot from the process!"
