"All students should be challenged to experience and learn new things every day..." Colleen Kessler, in Hands-on Ecology: Real-life Activities for Kids

"The ill-structured problems at the core of the units... require students to engage a creative approach to articulate the goals, turn them into coordinated subgoals, and reach a solution.  This kind of intellectual behavior has been cited as one of the hallmarks of giftedness." Kenneth J. Smith, in Challenging Units for Gifted Learners: Teaching the Way Gifted Students Think: Math

Figure It Out: Why you learn what you learn by Aparna Varadharajan
Do I have to learn this? But why? Am I ever going to use this? What is school trying to teach me? How do I learn? And why learn at all? Learning is something you do all your life. Yet, it does not have to be a chore. If you pay attention, you can learn more effectively—by thinking in different ways and connecting the dots, you can create a beautiful picture of your world. In our daily lives, there are many unexpected patterns which we tend to overlook. When you take the time to look at these patterns, you can see unlimited possibilities. This book offers many questions to think about and ponder. It's not a workbook; don’t limit yourself to the space provided. Instead, use space wherever you can—anywhere—to free your mind. In time, hopefully, you will reach the same conclusion I did: Learning brings great joy.
