A couple of our teachers just posted some end-of-semester projects over on Learning and Laptops. Brad posted a couple of projects on the topic of the Cold War, including one that made excellent use of PowerPoint.
Anne then posted nine projects examining the question: What does literature say about us as human beings? She likes them all, but particularly recommends "Experiences."
As always, constructive criticism is welcome (on the particular blog post, please). Since I usually get asked, these are freshmen students (that's 14 or 15 years old for those of you outside of the U.S.).
