Do you want to lead your teaching team in designing a more professional and educational PBL project for your kids?
My team and I have searched for the best PBL resources on the internet and around the world for a few years, and we have taken this research and pulled it together into this handy booklet.
This booklet takes a detailed look at the five steps involved in PBL project design (no matter your grade level): 1) Backward planning, 2) Crafting Driving Questions and Launching the Project, 3) Planning the Assessments, 4) Mapping the Project, and 5) Managing the Process. Within each step are easy-to-follow substeps to help you quickly identify your research needs or lead a PD in a logical manner. The booklet is chock full of evidenced-based practices, strategies, tips, resources, and templates for your to use in planning a PBL. It is the one source of PBL info that can turn anyone into a professional.
I use this booklet for implementing Professional Development programs for my staff, and we have it printed out in the office for all to reference throughout the year as they implement their PBL.
This book has become so useful around our school that we nicknamed it the "PBL Bible" or "Pible".
If you are looking to lead a PBL teaching movement at your school, then this is the booklet to get you started!
Where can I find the resources for this booklet?
You can read most of the information from the booklet here: www.archives/pbl-online.org. However, the click-through format of the website can be tedious, which is why I put the information into a booklet format - more conveniently shared with others.
Another source of information was www.bie.org's PBL Starter Kit. However, I found this starter kit to be too theoretical and not practical enough for those teachers looking to become PBL experts.
Other information came from seminars and workshops that we attended from High Tech High. These resources are not readily available online.
****** This booklet is part of a bundle. If you want access to the templates my coworkers and I use, as well as rubrics and samples of how we use the templates, then download the PBL Design Templates product in my store.
