    Bundle Description

    Welcome A.J. Juliani fans!!

    We are so excited to have collaborated with A.J., a leader in inquiry-driven education and author of Launch, Empower, The PBL Playbook, and Inquiry and Innovation in the Classroom in developing this content bundle. He is also the creator and teacher of The 20% Project and the Genius Hour Master Course.

    "NextLesson does PBL right. Project-based learning is growing because it engages and empowers students to learn experientially and share that learning in new and unique ways that go well beyond the classroom. Yet, many teachers are asking: How do we plan and implement PBL? How do we "fit it in" our current curriculum? How do we assess it using our current grading guidelines? How do we manage this type of learning? NextLesson provides PBL experiences that not only provide a structure for authentic learning, but also connect deeply to standards and curriculum. That's what has been the missing link in so many other projects, and what NextLesson does best." - A.J. Juliani

    This bundle includes 27 individual PBL Compatible Projects.

    Note: We have also included 4 Performance Tasks and 4 Social/Emotional Lessons for FREE!!

    Engage your students with NextLesson’s bundle of 7/8th Grade Projects. Our Projects are extended lessons based in real life situations or simulations, culminating in the creation of a final idea, interpretation or product. They are specifically designed to be ready to use and compatible with implementing PBL in your classroom. NextLesson Projects include 8 Key Components that facilitate an authentic PBL experience, requiring deeper learning and in-depth inquiry while also incorporating student voice and choice, reflection and revision and student collaboration.

    What's Included in Each NextLesson Project:

    The Projects within this bundle are delivered in PDF format and include additional resources such as links, videos, rubrics, Rank & Reason exercises, handouts, etc. In addition, NextLesson Projects are focused around our 8 Key Components for Projects:

    1- Authenticity

    • Authenticity involves a seamless application of an authentic theme or context through the course of a project.
    • The authenticity of a project could be:
    • an authentic (real-world) context for the project, (a simulation)
    • a final product that someone would actually produce in the real world
    • a real impact on the world or community
    • personal relevance- speaking to a student’s interests, culture or identity
    • inspired by the real world, using real world events or other connections

    2- Inquiry

    • Some form of inquiry will be required across the project. This might come from students posing their own questions, gathering their own information or developing solutions to a problem.

    3- Student Driven

    • The project will, for the most part, be student driven.
    • Opportunities will be provided for students to express voice and choice in various ways.

    4- Driving Question

    • Projects are focused on a clear, central problem, phrased as a driving question.

    5- Key Learnings: Understanding & Skills

    • Key knowledge and understanding will be learned through the students’ work on their projects.
    • 21st-century skills will be required: critical thinking/problem solving, creative thinking, collaboration and communication, and/or self-management.
    • Students will be assessed on these two project aspects, as well as the final product itself.

    6- Final Product

    • Projects will always end with the production of a final product.
    • The final product will be an authentic application of the context, key learnings and the driving question. Where possible, the final product should be shared beyond the classroom with another class, parents, the community or the public.

    7- Critique

    • An opportunity to give and receive feedback through critique will be incorporated.

    8- Reflection

    • Thoughtful, comprehensive reflection will take place at the end of the project on both what students have learned and their process.
