Project Goals: What were the learning objectives? The motivation for choosing the topic is a timely one, during March and April we hear ads on the radio articles in the newspapers about tax preparation and since I teach accounting I wanted to connect the topic to curriculum, the enthusiasm the students displayed when the subject was presented I found it promising.
