Understanding Project-Based Learning

by Kristie Burk

As most of you know, the new Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center has decided to focus on project-based learning (PBL) for its students.  For anyone unfamiliar with the concept, Heather Wolpert-Gawron has written a great article called, “What the Heck Is Project-Based Learning?”  Honestly, it’s one of the best explanations of PBL that I’ve read in a while. You should take a peek.

Wolpert-Gawron is the author of an upcoming book called DIY Project-Based Learning for ELA and History due out in June and a similar book for math and science coming in the Fall.
