This resource from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills discusses the components of project management in PBL and addresses what teachers and students can learn from project management professionals.
This blog post from BIE's John Larmer offers practical suggestions for troubleshooting common PBL management missteps. With ideas for preventing or fixing a range of pitfalls (from student teams not sharing work to pacing issues), this is a must-read for PBL teachers.
This is an example of a letter sent by a teacher to parents to inform them about a project. It explains what PBL is, details the project, addresses assessment issues, and tells parents about how they can be involved. The example here can serve as a model as you think through how you want to communicate with families about critical aspects of a project.
Designed for K-5 teachers, PBL in the Elementary Grades contains down-to-earth, classroom-tested advice, including sample projects, step-by-step guidance, tips from experienced practitioners, and planning tools. The book includes a "portrait of a project"that walks teachers through the management process, as well as a "Managing Your Project" chapter that addresses topics like building culture, guiding inquiry, managing team work, and facilitating presentations.
