Are you looking for an introductory PBL that will help you introduce your students to the ways of the business world and also to the ways of short stories in your 9th grade English classroom? This PBL includes a mock calendar to show you the length of time you could/should spend on this project. Learners of course vary, and it has built-in scaffolding to provide for that. All grammar notes are included other than anything else you feel you need to add. A team contract is included, as well as the entry event letter to "hook" your 9th graders. This PBL uses "The Most Dangerous Game," and "The Scarlet Ibis" and can also use "A Sound of Thunder." It will end with an essay of your choosing based on your students' unique needs. This provides easy scaffolding, as well. 21st century skills are addressed because this PBL covers the 4 C's well, especially creativity.
