In 2001, Eeva Reeder developed and implemented an architecture assignment for her Mountlake Terrace High School geometry students in which they designed a school and consulted with local experts -- an example of project-based learning and comprehensive assessment at their best. She left the school in 2002 to become an educational consultant, and provided staff development to teachers statewide in applied-learning instructional strategies. She also codeveloped instructional rubrics for the SchoolWork Initiative. The rubrics were designed to help students improve their performance in problem solving, teamwork, information gathering, oral presentation, and other work-based skills.

Eeva Reeder passed away in August of 2010 at the age of 53. We are grateful for her many contributions to her numerous students, the field of project-based learning, and to Edutopia.org, and she is greatly missed.

There are many Edutopia resources that include Reeder's work:
