This is my first run at this and just a basic outline. If you happen to use it and change it add to it or anything let me know! I am currently teaching middle years IB with a PBL theme. I am calling them CPBL's now to focus my students and parents that the work should occur in class. I am excited about the real world element to this project. The grade level is 6th and it is USII 1865 to present. I will be developing a checklist for them, finding readings to create a Venn Diagram with on the first day to compare past and present, and working with my language arts teacher to work on persuasive writing. The letter writing workshop I hope to have a political figure come in and give feedback on the process. If you have done anything like this or see any room for growth I would love the ideas!
