On the blessedly empty flight home from Philadelphia to Denver, we were given the opportunity to watch “Dolphin Tale“. I rolled my eyes and turned over to sleep, thinking it would be a silly movie. However, about halfway through the film I started paying attention. This film, more so than any other I have seen, shows the power of project based learning that is student-led and student-driven. It deals with humanity, community, and generosity. It is inspiring on many levels.
I highly recommend you watch the movie. Then, share it with your students.
