Project Based Learning
Gain an in-depth overview of Project Based Learning (PBL), including how this instructional approach supports 21st century learning outcomes and is an effective instructional methodology for all students learning rigorous content standards. Participants will develop the framework of their own PBL unit.
This professional learning series will focus on multiple, interrelated strategies designed to meaningfully engage students in content. Although each day addresses distinct and separate content, each topic overlaps conceptually and in practice. Therefore, we encourage teachers and school teams to participate in all four sessions.
All sessions: 9:00 - 2:00
