Would you like to conduct effective Project Based Learning in your classroom, but feel unsure how to start? Or have you tried "doing a project" but it didn't turn out the way you wanted? Or have you done PBL in the past, but you're looking for new ideas or a more systematic process of planning and managing projects, to meet the demands of today's world of standards and testing? If your answer is "yes" to any of the above, this book is meant for you.I ordered a copy of the book earlier in the week after reading the Introduction (free download). Send me a note if you're interested in reading it along with other ZPS teachers. For middle and high school teachers, BIE also publishes the PBL Starter Kit for those who are new to PBL.
Designed for teachers of Kindergarten through 5th grade students, PBL in the Elementary Grades contains down-to-earth, classroom-tested advice, including sample projects, step-by-step guidance, tips from experienced practitioners, and planning tools.
Happy summer reading!
