PBL-related resources created by BIE and collected from fellow PBL travelers. The resources are organized into three broad categories: things to read, to watch, or to interact with. If you would like to take a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach to learning about PBL, then check out the recommended resources for teachers, coaches, principals, and district leaders. The featured resources have a note on "How Can You Use It?" We also suggest starting your DIY experience by purchasing one of BIE's books.

PBL for 21st Century Success
Suzie Boss, National Faculty, BIE

The newest book in BIE’s PBL Toolkit series is a practical guide to building 21st century student competency in the “4 C’s” – critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity/innovation – during a project. Designed for middle school and high school teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders, this book details how the 4 C’s align with the Common Core State Standards.

PBL for 21st Century Success includes sample projects from a variety of grade levels and subjects, CCSS-aligned rubrics for each of the 4 C’s, and tips for using technology to enhance projects, with a special chapter for school leaders on building community, parent, and systemic support for 21st century learning with PBL.

 

PBL Starter Kit

John Larmer, Editor in Chief, BIE

You've heard about Project Based Learning, but now you're wondering...Sure, it sounds good, but is it right for me and my students? Isn't it a big change? Can I do it in today's educational landscape? Our answer is yes, yes, and yes - with some "buts and ifs" we explore in the PBL Starter Kit.

The PBL Starter Kit is written for middle school and high school teachers who are new to PBL. It contains easy to read, brief and to-the-point advice about your first, relatively simple project, with examples and tools to help you plan it well. It can be used as a supplement to BIE professional development workshops or as a stand-alone guide to PBL

John Larmer, Editor in Chief, BIE
Sara Hallermann, BIE Consultant, BIE

Would you like to conduct effective Project Based Learning in your classroom, but feel unsure how to start? Or have you tried "doing a project" but it didn't turn out the way you wanted? Or have you done PBL in the past, but you're looking for new ideas or a more systematic process of planning and managing projects, to meet the demands of today's world of standards and testing? If your answer is "yes" to any of the above, this book is meant for you.

Designed for teachers of Kindergarten through 5th grade students, 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. It can be used as a supplement to BIE professional development workshops or as a stand-alone guide to PBL.
