In teaching children to read closely, we need to introduce them to the idea of bias. Identifying bias means prompting students to think as much about what isn’t written on the page as it requires looking at what is written on the page.
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. 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.
Sarah Olson's insight:
I love the point about PBL bing on the continuum of Inquiry!
