Based on the Buck Institute for Education's model for PBL, the three-day PBL 101 Workshop engages participants in learning how to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, standards- focused project. The workshop models the project process. This workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration. Participants have substantial time to plan their own project, and receive formative feedback from peers and the facilitator.
Day 1: Participants will become familiar with Project Based design elements and teaching practices. They will generate project ideas that are aligned to standards and that help students build key success skills.
Day 2: Participants will engage in peer critique, refining their project ideas as they learn about the importance of critique and revision in the PBL classroom. They will explore high-quality assessment in PBL, plan assessments for their projects, and take part in differentiated learning experiences based on their needs.
Day 3: Participants explore principles and practices of management in the PBL classroom, and use a structured protocol to improve, develop, and share their project plans.
PBL 101 (6-12) participants will receive a copy of Setting the Standard for PBL: A Proven Approach to Rigorous Instruction.
PBL 101 (K-5) participants will receive a copy of the PBL in the Elementary Grades Toolkit.
One semester hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for an additional $249. Lunch is on your own.
