Okay, the title of this book is a little hokey, but I like that it is not ONLY labeled as project based learning (even thought that is what this collection is about) because I think that a lot of PBL resources can get a little narrow in the thinking behind them. This book is funny and eye-opening, offering great ideas to try in your own class that are both PBL based and furthermore, just excellent teaching practices!
This video blows my mind. The methods that are the foundation for how this school runs and the ideas that spawn learning with these 5 year olds are simply incredible. Although many of the specific activities and projects are not quite applicable to upper elementary, the thought process behind them are 100% inspired and applicable.
This site has been a lifesaver for me thus far. Coming up with appropriate project ideas that fit all of the requirements of a true project based learning model is difficult; this site makes it easier! Not only are there TONS of resources and links here, but most of them lead to tangible and realistic project plans.
No collection would be complete without a post from Edutopia!! This post takes you on a quick journey from the Project Based Learning starting point all the way through the final stages in a concise and useful way. Project Based Learning takes a whole lot more planning and information than this post offers, but it is a great place to start before jumping in with both feet.
