What Past Participants Have to Say…
“Participating in the Scholars program has been the single most best and most influential decision that I have made in my teaching career. […] There is no value that you can place on knowing other like-minded individuals who are caring, sharing, and willing to help each other to succeed.”

1. Does requiring students to write out their thinking processes and problem solving strategies help them improve their problem solving abilities?
2. Does sharing their written thinking processes and problem solving strategies with their peers help them improve their problem solving abilities?
