*Start with a project that is manageable. Create a project that can be realistically completed in a couple of class periods. * Be clear about your expectations for the project. * Develop necessary materials to assist students with the project such as a suggested timeline for project, a sample finished project, etc. * Create a rubric for assessment before students begin project to guide their work. *Ensure that the project being created is meaningful to student learning. Projects that are created just for “project sake” are not effective for student learning and achievement. * Create projects that showcase real-world learning and experiences to help prepare students for real world application.
