Here is what they say about their method: QUOTE Project SEED instruction combines a non-lecture, questioning method with techniques designed to encourage constant verbal and nonverbal feedback, promote student participation, and improve focus. The Project SEED method makes the class the arbiters of knowledge and gives them ownership of the material.
The Project SEED method of teaching fosters lifelong learning skills. Students are pushed to think for themselves, articulate their reasoning, improve their focus, and contribute to the group discussion ? often with hand signals or chorus responses. This method is efficient and effective, promoting individual learning as well as group interaction and collaboration. Our emphasis on mathematical reasoning and student explanations aligns perfectly with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice.
The Project SEED method engages young, active minds with an interactive question-and-answer style of teaching, promoting deep understanding of mathematical concepts. In this safe environment, students can take academic risks without fear of embarrassment or humiliation, while constant opportunities to give feedback help maintain student focus.
Mastering advanced mathematical concepts boosts confidence in young students, improves their performance in other academic areas, and teaches them to be effective learners. UNQUOTE (NOTA BENE! "Non-lecture, questioning method")
As observed in my earlier message responding to Professor Becker's post, I do hope all their data will be found tto be genuine. (From whatever I have read at the above-noted website, I'd opine that it is all genuine stuff).
Alas that some of those who might have learned the most useful lessons from Project SEED do not seem to be with us these days!
