TEAM Research #11: Serve the Students

In days of old, the teacher led most learning from the front of the room. Research shows that this "sage on the stage" role plays only one part of a balanced, blended learning program.  Research today also demonstrates the strength of student-to-student collaboration, conversation, and creativity.  So as this project evolves in the next few days, I'll mostly serve the students by answering questions, proving resources, directing and redirecting, leading focus lessons on specific research topics, and cheerleading them on towards great work with our project outline.

Tasks (note: sadly the play will be postponed until after the ES project)
