Educators at Anderson New Technology High School in California use the "process method" to teach students critical-thinking skills across many subject areas. For a recent social-studies project, the students acted as delegates to the nation's first Constitutional Convention held in 1787. Students researched their roles using primary-source documents, and remained in character as they answered questions from parents, who acted as foreign dignitaries. For their final project, the students wrote a script highlighting the perspectives of the Founding Fathers.
