"It's no secret that in today's complex world, students face unparalleled demands as they prepare for college, careers, and active citizenship. However, those demands won't be met without a fundamental shift from traditional, teacher-centered instruction toward innovative, student-centered teaching and learning. For schools ready to make such a shift, project-based learning (PBL) offers a proven framework to help students be better equipped to tackle future challenges.

Project-Based Teachers encourage active questioning, curiosity, and peer learning; create learning environments in which every student has a voice; and have a mastery of content but are also comfortable responding to students' questions by saying, "I don’t know. Let's find out together."

In this book, Suzie Boss and John Larmer build on the framework for Gold Standard PBL originally presented in Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning and explore the seven practices integral to Project Based Teaching:

  • Build the Culture

  • Design and Plan

  • Align to Standards

  • Manage Activities

  • Assess Student Learning

  • Scaffold Student Learning

  • Engage and Coach

Join me for this virtual book study to learn about project based teaching and how to create rigorous and engaging learning experiences for your students!

This class is available for License Renewal, Graduate, Paraeducator or Audit credit.
