  9. 9. Act 2: Activating Prior Knowledge <ul><li>Sherri Johnston reminds us: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Sylvia Chard’s Project Approach suggests that the beginning of any project should be spent building student interest and activating background knowledge. 25% of a project should be spent in this phase before moving into investigations and then sharing newfound understandings. This phase is usually rushed or skipped and we move students directly into &quot;answering the big question.&quot; </li></ul>

  11. 11. Act 3: Modeling Curiosity <ul><li>Nick Ryan reminds us to be role-models: </li></ul><ul><li>“ While students might not see the value that inquiry learning brings to their immediate lives, if they can see how it has enriched my life, they will eventually appreciate the everyday application of PBL.” </li></ul><ul><li>Key idea: Show your inquiring mind. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Act 3: Modeling Curiosity <ul><li>And… </li></ul><ul><li>“ Never be afraid to tell a student that you don't know the answer to a question. Show students that it's not a crime to not know an answer, and that the real problem is not taking the time to find it .” </li></ul>Photo by Daemon Squire

  17. 17. Act 4: Building on What Came Before <ul><li>George Mayo reminds us </li></ul><ul><li>to “tell the story” of past projects: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Having past examples of student work online and at my fingertips is incredibly valuable. The work becomes an ever-growing resource for me and my current students. We'll look at past projects and talk about what we liked, and what worked. But we'll also talk about things that could have been improved. I also try to find student work from other classrooms to share with my students.” </li></ul>
