As we begin our journey of project development, a good question to begin with is: How do we assess project work? To help students reach the learning goals you’re aiming for in a project, they’re going to need feedback on how they’re doing. They need specific, concrete examples of what a skill looks like in practice, not just a simple checklist.
This week’s Fabulous Friday Find comes from PBLU.org. Project Based Learning U is a site newly created from the Buck Institute for Education. The classes offered build your skills for implementing one of the PBLU projects. (These projects are already built for you!) You tailor the learning experience to your needs and interests and in each class, you build a foundation. That’s the “how to.” Then you apply what you have learned in your own classroom by implementing the PBLU project during the capstone class. That’s the “now DO.” So, pick a class and a project and get your feet wet!
