About the I-Search

" I think the overall benefit is that we talk a lot about trying to show the kids what real world learning is like, and this project has forced us to do it because we're not looking at any prepared papers. We're creating the curriculum ourselves. We're getting the kids to act as if they were really doing research as one does professionally, where they have to go out into the world, whether its talking to people, using the Internet, using the telephone, networking, writing letters, communicating, and knowing how to get information that's not from a printed text which is primarily what they've been doing all along. And the kids have enjoyed that "
