Many advanced students struggle with projects for a couple of reasons:
They struggle with open-ended projects. There is no right or wrong answer and they can’t rely on worksheets or instructions to complete the project.
They have a tendency to over-complicate their projects.
Working in groups is challenging.
Things we can do to help them with this:
- Provide examples for them to see.
- Guide the topics that they have to choose from so that it helps them narrow their focus.
- Connect them with “experts” within your community to get feedback on their project.
