Project Based Learning: The 10 Step Plan

Project Based Learning: The 10 Step Plan:

"A decade ago, project based learning (PBL) was popular in a few schools and with a few teachers, but hardly widespread. Not so now. With the rise of 21st century skills instruction, the advent of career and college readiness goals and a renewed emphasis on inquiry, the game is changing. PBL is popular.

The most visible evidence of PBL’s new level of acceptance is a phenomenon rarely encountered in prior years: Districts have begun to see PBL as the primary method for teaching and learning in all grade levels, and are backing up their decision by offering in-depth PBL professional development and coaching to teachers."
