Thank you for your comment, I would love to encourage discussion to create a definition/understanding around the words and phrases.  Following that discuss how schools and teachers can implement the ideas to encourage learning.  

Since this group only has 11 members, maybe this would be better posted someplace else?  Do you have a recommendation, I am new to this community and am just learning how to navigate around it.

Let me de-construct your comment. You use the words and phrases: incorporate problem solving; real world problems; personal excellence;larger challenging problems; under-performing students; developing understanding. Now, this is quite an undertaking! We need to better understand and agree upon what these ideas mean before we can figure out what schools can do and what teachers can do.

Before I volunteer to sort this out, perhaps members of this group and others who want to join the discussion can weigh in. I think its worth pursuing.

I would love to discuss how schools can incorporate problem solving with real world problems to encourage personal excellence in the Public Schools.  I've found that by focusing on larger challenging problems, where there isn't a clear answer, my under-performance students have been working to develop their own understanding of how to approach various problems.
