Have fun!

If you would have told me in grade eight that having fun at school is just as important as meeting assignment criteria, I would have thought you were crazy. Fun has no place in a project; it’s not productive! This mindset stuck with me all throughout grades eight to eleven, and, despite enjoying during a […]

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Gears shift pretty fast in PLP, especially when exhibition time rolls around. Just when we were getting the hang of Zettelkasten, we learned it was time to put our note-taking careers on hiatus and launch full-force into the spring exhibition.
