Review:

"Wow! I love it when you guys exceed my expectations. I very much enjoyed reading about these capstone projects. I like the variety of projects to consider. The projects range in size (small to large), difficulty (easy to more involved), ability level (basic to advanced), individual versus group projects, single versus multidisciplinary, and projects that are lab-based versus those more traditional pen and paper. The project instructions are easy to follow, and where appropriate, you have provided the necessary forms to fill out. I like how you have provided documentation and citations for where the background information is located in the chapter. Having ten different projects to choose from is great!" -- Jeff Roth-Vinson, Cottage Grove High School, Oregon

"The capstone projects are excellent resources for instructors. Project 4: Dumpster Diving is a valuable exercise that is not commonly explored in a classroom setting. Project 5 requires students to conduct research outside of the textbook case studies. Research and public speaking need to be incorporated more into classroom settings. I also like the focus on the physical evidence. Each group of students can be assigned a different type of physical evidence. I also like the incorporation of peer review and the evaluation/reflection from student comments. Good idea to include a debate in project 10: students are properly guided through the process of the argument." -- Karen Cruse, Summit Country Day School, Cincinnati, OH
