  2. Under Construction 1. Significant Content 2. Guiding Questions 3. Inquiry 4. Critique & Revision 5. Public Audience Reference: http://bie.org/about/what_pbl

  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. When will I ever use this? Why do I have to do this? What does it matter if I know this?
  10. Broadly encompass a hierarchical structure of guiding questions. Frame to promote higher level thinking. Link and anchor concepts together. Writing an Essential Question ...As an umbrella for guiding questions.
  11. Essential Questions Frame unit of study & Connect what is learned to real world Require critical thinking to answer Allow students to form original ideas instead of predetermined answers. Point students toward key ideas & main concepts we want them to understand Asked & re-asked
  12. Weather & Natural Disasters Essential Question: What are environmental and cultural effects of a hurricane? Guiding Questions: 1. What are characteristics of a hurricane? 2. How are people affected by a hurricane? 3. What is the impact of a hurricane on the environment?
  13. Ecosystems Essential Question: How do living things depend on one another and on their environments? Guiding Questions: 1. How are living things connected? 2. How does human activity affect environments? 3. How are habitats alike and different?
  14. Break down Essential Question * Link key ideas & sub-topics to essential question. ★ What caused this? ★ Who is involved? ★ Why did this happen? ★ How does this affect you personally? ★ How does this affect your community? ★ How are relationships formed and made? ★ How does this affect other aspects that are linked to this topic? Guiding Questions

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
  16. Assessment Evidence of learning? ★ Product? - students ‘create’ ★ Performance? - students ‘do’ Alignment ★ Assess content knowledge and understanding separate from other skills i) concept web - notes - draft
  17. Rubrics ★ Provide criteria to students ★ Creators - Rubistar & PBL Checklists ■ Better option--build with students a set of criteria ■ Show them examples of evidence in student work. ■ Have them apply criteria to examples at different levels of quality
