Close Reading: Understanding Bias | Literacy Builders

Close Reading: Understanding Bias | Literacy Builders | Curriculum and Instruction Resources | Scoop.it

by Kim Yaris

It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.
