This book take readers through the step-by-step process of how to create, implement, and assess project based learning (PBL) using a classroom-tested framework. Also included are chapters for school leaders on implementing PBL system wide and the use of PBL in informal settings.
Examples from all grade levels and content areas provide evidence of the powerful effects that PBL can have, including
* increased student motivation and preparation for college, careers, and citizenship;
* better results on high-stakes tests;
* a more satisfying teaching experience; and
* new ways for educators to communicate with parents, communities, and the wider world.
