    Fertile Soil for Life-Long Curiosity

    "Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants." -John W. Gardner

    Project-Based Learning is the most effective methodology to use for teaching students how to grow their own plants! This book gives not only the inspiration to put the ideas into practice but also the specific, actionable tools to do so. The reader leaves the book with a step-by-step list for planning considerations, gathering resources, guiding students through the process, presenting work, and evaluating outcomes. You will receive a copy of the eBook, and advance notice of upcoming appearances and the development of new material.
