Workshop Description:

In today's rapidly changing world, students need to develop skills that will help them succeed for the future. Project-based learning (PBL) has been shown to be an effective teaching methodology that helps students build essential skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.

In this session, we will explore the best practices and strategies for implementing PBL in K-12 inclusion classrooms. You will learn how to design and implement PBL projects that engage students, foster creativity, reach each and every student no matter how they learn and promote deeper learning. We will also discuss how to assess PBL projects and provide constructive feedback to students. In addition to learning and practicing the skills for creating PBL projects, you'll receive a free planning guide on how create projects. This session is interactive and you'll walk away with new ideas, skills and resources to help you plan and implement project-based learning.

Key Takeaways & Outcomes:

As all PreK-12 educators understand the importance of using real world examples and activities to help our students make meaning of the content, this workshop will deliver effective teaching approaches proven to help students develop crucial skills like critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. Recognizing the advantages of project-based learning for all Pre K-12 students and how it supports all levels of learners, participants will be able to tailor activities that cater to individual student needs. By creating PBL projects that adhere to learning objectives and standards as well as the understanding of how to evaluate the work produced by the students, especially as it crosses content matter, all participants will depart with practical strategies and resources to facilitate the initiation of PBL implementation.
