Chapter Seven

Supporting the Growth

Take a big breath and give yourselves a pat on the back. You have completed a tremendous amount of coordination and work. Before you move on to other studies and activities, take time to assess what has been accomplished and what students have learned. If you have utilized the Rubrics throughout this curriculum the final evaluations will be an extension of this continuum. If you have settled on other criteria for determining student success, then use this time for student review and reflection. Our hope is this program offers teachers, students and the community lasting memories and on-going relationships that can be nurtured well beyond the life of the project.
