I am working to finalize what classes I want to teach next year. This will be my 2nd year teaching, and I am trying to offer some new options that are Interesting and Relevant to the students.
Has anyone had a class that was students working on their own types of projects or areas of interest? Similar to a "special topics" class. I am looking for ideas for what to call it, requirements, and how to make it work. It isn't just an independent study class, but instead a full class in which students have more freedom/responsibility to design what they are learning/working on.
