The Dumpster Project is what I named a project that is thrown away after it is completed and exhibited. No one wants to keep it, not you, the school or your students; this is highly problematic. If we have a place where the project can live on, a wall, hanging from the ceiling, on video, in a book or at students homes that is the dream.
An Exhibition Plan brings authenticity to the project and the work being done. The students knowing that their work is not a through away will create meaning. Empathy and entrepreneurial spirit are where the exhibition is found, it doesn't happen spontaneously, teachers and students need to plan exhibitions.
