1. I really like the idea, but why limit it? What happens if you find more students want to do that than go the more traditional route? I envy your ability to offer this opportunity.

  2. Love it. Down with the groupthink, up with autonomy! Quiet. Sounds refreshing. I hope some great students find you and run with this. I especially like the idea of a daily log where students can reflect on their journey. I would love to see logs where students follow hunches which fail and spend entire periods exploring things which may or may not lead to breakthroughs. I’ve been increasingly interested in non-linear learning processes and think there’s a lot that can be learned from them in a social studies setting. Good luck!

  3. I love this. I know my daughter would love this (6th grader), she has always preferred to work alone. It is reminiscent of online learning, you get your lessons for the week, your reading assignments and you can chat online about it, but essentially you are left alone to get it all done.
