PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Start your school year with authentic learning by having your students complete this PBL to organize your classroom library. The project is organized around the central question: How can we as members of our classroom community organize our classroom library in the best way so we can all easily find books to read?
Students will think critically to brainstorm different categories of books and come up with a plan based on the space and books available. Once they come up with a plan, they will present a sales pitch to you or the class to convince you to carry out their plan. Throughout the learning process, their engagement and curiosity will drive your instruction through mini lessons including reading genres, topics, authors, brainstorming, planning, and sharing. There are also opportunities throughout for teaching social skills and 21st century skills through different types of sharing and giving and receiving feedback and being flexible with plans.

This project can easily be differentiated for your age group and classroom needs. It can be assigned as an enrichment project for early finishers/advanced learners or as a whole class project.

- Step by step teaching notes and suggestions
- Central Question
