Really want to get this right

Can someone please help me with this question?

Cite an innovative instructional practice that will engage every student in meaningful, authentic and rigorous work while motivating students to be self-directed and inquisitive learners. Describe how you will use this practice in your classroom.

Any ideas as to what you have done in your classroom to achieve this?

I really don't know what they are looking for specifically in this quesiton, but I would think making referencing to centers, or Daily 5, or some other such independent workshop-style work would be good. I hate application questions!

Project based learning is good too. I agree, I hate questions like this because you know they have something specific in mind and unless you have ESP you really don't know what it is.

The Project Approach is a good one. You could have a project that is meaningful to all of the kids, they can write X number of complete sentences in their journals daily depending on age, write a class book too.

Daily 5 and guided math. Both include everything you said!
