The Buck Institute for Education is an organization focused on improving 21st century teaching and learning through project based learning or PBL. I came across their website today and noted a number of good resources including:
- teaching videos in PBL
- planning materials including student handouts, rubrics, and feedback forms
- resource articles
- a project database of over 400 different projects in a number of content areas including English, math, arts, health, science, social studies and world languages
- a complete DIY support website
I think I will follow their PBL blog, too, so as to continue my own education in, and learn more about, implementing PBL in the classroom.
