This course provides teachers with an understanding of what Project-based Learning (PBL) is and what research says about the effectiveness of PBL on student achievement. During this course, participants will learn how to create an effective PBL unit based on their grade level or key content standards and objectives.
Participants work toward creating a student-centered environment which fosters student independence and collaboration within the classroom to deepen critical thinking and problem solving. Participants will use both formative and summative assessment to determine the depth of student learning. They will help the student reach higher levels of performance through focused self-analysis and feedback, peer feedback and teacher feedback.
