Project Based Learning

As we near the end of the school year, many teachers are looking at Project Based Learning. We've been leading some PD and sharing ideas and resources with teachers to prepare them for this adventure.

Here are a couple of interesting PBL articles:

And one of my favorite PBL quotes: "If you assign a project and get back 30 of the exact same thing, that's not a project, that's a recipe." ~ Chris Lehmann

I am excited that more of our school leaders and teachers are talking about, investigating, and learning about PBL. For many teachers, PBL is like coloring outside of the lines! It's a long road to travel but we will eventually get there!
