One of my favorite projects was semester project week. Each student selected a topic from their Discover the Ancient World topics and presented it to the class along with a 10 page research paper. We had a student video and everyone gave a critique of others presentations, kinda like a job review. We made the critique forms and this was an opportunity on how to give constructive feedback in a kind way. Good people skills training and preparation for being a leader.
