A 25-hr PBL project

I have been creating a 25 hour Project-Based Learning project on learning to golf.  So far, I have learned that golf can be enjoyable and frustrating at the same time.  I have discussed golf with different people, read, had a golf lesson, practiced golfing, and editing my wiki.

Time spent: 11 hours and 10 minutes

  • 10 minute talk with Eva
  • 1 hour talk with my mom via Skype
  • 3 hours reading…..rules, rules and more rules ( I think I could spend the entire 25 hours reading rules)
  • 3 hours golfing
  • 1 hour talking golf with dad, dressing up in golf attire and taking pics
  • 1 hours setting up wiki
  • 2 hours preparing wiki, finding widgets, learning how to use widgets, editing pictures

I wish that my wiki could do more things and that widgets were all free.  Also, golf is expensive.

I have learned that you need to be relaxed when swinging a club; in addition to the fact, I have used some muscles that I have not used and they HURT!

The project is going well.  If I can get over the frustration of not being able to hit the ball the way I want EVERY time, I might enjoy it as a leisure activity.

This project is one I probably would have put off due to my previous experience with golf. I am glad I have taken a step to know and understand golf.

    Lots of great learning happening in your project Jennifer! Yes, golf is about rules and etiquette, don’t walk here and don’t talk then and don’t look there and don’t …
    However, put the rules behind you and enjoy the game … the trees are beautiful, the people are fun, the fresh air is what you need when you are tired of marking …
    I haven’t figured out the consistency either but that makes the game adventurous … checking out different forests each time …
    Have fun!
