During the project, students will connect to the world they live in through the collaboration that must occur for a successful learning experience. Students will work together to determine a group plan and actions. In addition, they will meet to discuss ways to improve their project, peer edit, and support each other. They will collaborate with the teacher throughout the development of their project, with the teacher as a facilitator and not a lecturer. Students will also collaborate with their community by contacting at least one professional who may answer questions relating to the problem the group is trying to solve. Furthermore, students will work to solve a problem within their own community, which will help them connect to situations they are facing, as well as helping them to become productive citizens of their community.
