ENGAGING STUDENTS W/ PBL

Topic: Curriculum and Instruction
Instructor: Jodi Slonaker
Method: Online (OWRK)
Sponsor: Teach n' Kids Learn, Inc.
Center Offered: OLPD

Course Description:

Every day teachers look for ways to meet all of their content objectives in a way that is meaningful, purposeful, and engaging to their students. Project-based learning not only provides meaningful, purposeful, and engaging opportunities for learning, but also helps students to develop the skills needed for college and career readiness, to develop deep conceptual understanding, and to apply what they are learning in the classroom to tasks and problems.

 Through this course, you will understand the main components of project-based learning, go through a step-by-step process for developing a project-based learning unit, and develop instructional strategies for implementing PBL in your classroom.

 Teachers will work toward creating a student-centered environment which fosters student independence and collaboration within the classroom to deepen critical thinking and problem-solving.

 Teachers 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.
