Project based learning

Developing questions about complex, intriguing, and sometimes mysterious experiences or phenomena seems to be a very natural occurrence. When people encounter strange happenings or difficult concepts and ideas, they naturally formulate questions such as, “What’s going on? Why is this happening? What does this mean? What will happen in the future?” If they decide to answer these questions, they embark on a journey of thought that may take a few minutes, hours, or years.

Final thought

Final Thought

End With a BANG, Not a Whimper! The last day of a project should not be, “OK, turn in your papers and here’s the test. Our next unit begins Monday.”

When you begin developing ideas for projects, envision your students presenting their work to an involved audience.

The project should end with a sense of pride, excitement, and celebration.

Reflective journal

REFLECTIVE JOURNAL

Imagine life as problem-free. Wouldn’t that be wonderful!

Or, would it?

In any case, life does not come problem-free because that is the nature of life here on earth, full of challenging opportunities to learn, grow, reflect, and enjoy.

This may be the most obvious reason why project-based learning is important for us to consider – PBL engages students in life as we know it, full of fascinating, problematic situations worth thinking about, investigating, and resolving.

--from Problem-Based Learning by John Barell (2007)

  • I can explain what Project-Based Learning is and how it works for motivating struggling students.

  • I can plan units around driving questions and projects that are important to students.
