How Long Should My Projects Be?

Before you take the students through a high-stakes, high-stress project project cycle, it's nice to do some low-stakes, fun team building activities for them to get to know each.  The activity I'm going to share with you is called Back Talk.  All team building should lead to some teachable moment(s).  There is a wonderful teachable moment for teachers at the end of this blog regarding, "How long should my projects be?"

This activity is done in groups of 2.  I have my wonderful colleagues Theresa Siliezar & David Ross volunteering some valuable Friday work time to demonstrate Back Talk.  This bonding moment is my gift to them.
