  • 2. Under Construction 1. Significant Content 2. Guiding Questions 3. Inquiry 4. Critique & Revision 5. Public Audience Reference: http://bie.org/about/what_pbl
  • 3. First Project? ● 1 curriculum area (integrated with literacy standards) ● limited student product types Cross-Curricular Project! (down the road) Widen Scope to ... ● 2 weeks + ● multiple subjects (integrated with literacy standards) ● more complex product and technology options ● community outreach & presentation to more public audience Getting Started Limit Scope to ...
  • 4. To begin, consider... Which instructional standard(s) do I want to transform? ● What engaging, relevant, problem or challenge could students attempt that is related to key concepts and skills? ● How might students be asked to work collaboratively as part of this study?
  • 5. Inquiry ...students are able to work without relying on teacher too much, take initiative, stay on task, find resources, learn from each other, and solve problems + Independence ...students engaged in process of asking questions, investigating answers from range of sources and developing answers to share.
  • 6. Define the assignment with its intended outcome. This may sound like you’re working backwards … you are. Map out the end result before students begin the assignment.
  • 7. Time frame? ➔ Curriculum maps & pacing guides ➔ Time allocations for subject areas Core content knowledge, priority standards? ★ 1-3 standards from academic content area ★ Map curriculum to prioritize content for assignments/projects ★ Unpack standards in curriculum guides to design project lessons, products, and assessments closely aligned with standards Scope
  • 8. (20) Science, technology, and society. The student understands the influences of science and technology on contemporary societies. The student is expected to: (A) give examples of scientific discoveries and technological innovations, including the roles of scientists and inventors, that have transcended the boundaries of societies and have shaped the world; (B) explain how resources, belief systems, economic factors, and political decisions have affected the use of technology; and (C) make predictions about future social, political, economic, cultural, and environmental impacts that may result from future scientific discoveries and technological innovations. (23) Research/Gathering Sources. Students determine, locate, and explore the full range of relevant sources addressing a research question and systematically record the information they gather. Students are expected to: (A) follow the research plan to collect data from a range of print and electronic resources (e.g., reference texts, periodicals, web pages, online sources) and data from experts; (C) record data, utilizing available technology (e.g., word processors) in order to see the relationships between ideas, and convert graphic/visual data (e.g., charts, diagrams, timelines) into written notes; (D) identify the source of notes (e.g., author, title, page number) and record bibliographic information concerning those sources according to a standard format; and (E) differentiate between paraphrasing and plagiarism and identify the importance of citing valid and reliable sources. 25) Research/Organizing and Presenting Ideas. Students organize and present their ideas and information according to the purpose of the research and their audience. Students are expected to synthesize the research into a written or an oral presentation that: (A) compiles important information from multiple sources; 7th Science TX-TEKS 7th ELA TX-TEKS
  • 9. Essential Question ...focus for project work and captures task students are engaged with in broad open-ended form.
