RE: Making constructivism simple? (hormones)

Flying hormones huh? It's an addressable and authentic problem requiring much discression and privacy. Answering the demands of raging hormones is a classic problem addressed through art (fine and not) many times over the centuries. Kids have to individually discover just what specific "hormonal issues" they really truely deeply NEED to address. Then the teacher has to decide exactly what (if anything) they can do to help. BIG problem.

But maybe perfect for a constructivist approach. After all we want the kids constructing knowledge for and amongst themselves without too much input from the teacher. Still seem pretty risky. I don't know.

good luck!
