Project Based Learning

On Thursday and Friday of last week I had the opportunity to take a professional development class on Problem Based Learning through  the Buck Institute for Education.

It was a great experience and I really learned a lot about PBL. I can not wait to incorporate my economics PBL unit into my classroom in November!!

I have also attached a great PBL video that is hysterical! Once you watch the video make sure you click the More to this story at the top (above the video) to find out more about the kids from Newport New, VA.

Too Late to Apologize: A Declaration

What a cool video! I hope to show this to my class, even though 4th grade may be a little young. I think they will like the music!
