    My son is often given a shool project to do ( say ... the Amazon
    rainforest) but is often unfocussed and in doubt about how much to do or
    how to construct an apropriate 'project' . Like most 13 year olds he
    avoids parental advice. Any useful resources to guide on how to complete
    shool 'projects'

    1) The internet is a brilliant resource but there is a temptation to
    download loads of material and hand it in as a finished project.

    2) Anyone who wants to know "how much is needed" is rarely in danger of
    doing too much!

    3) Show an interest in the subject reflected in your own comments about
    it. Sentences beginning "I think" are useful if there is some
    evidence to back up the argument.

    4) Most difficult - how would you make this subject interesting to
    someone of your own age? If you can do that you can produce an
    excellent project.

    5) Usual teacherly advice - use a spelling checker, never allow words
    like "shool" to creep into your work.
