Practical PBL: Design an Instructional Unit in Seven Phases | Edutopia

Practical PBL: Design an Instructional Unit in Seven Phases | Edutopia | Educator Professional Learning | Scoop.it

By Amber Graber

 

"You can transform your classroom. While there are many approaches to project-based learning, we have had the most success with the model our team developed -- a model called "The Seven Phases of a Project Cycle." Each and every one of our instructional units is designed using these seven phases.

 

"To begin, ask yourself these questions:

What instructional unit do I want to transform?

What engaging, relevant, real-world problem could students attempt to solve that is related to the concepts and skills in the unit?

What authentic roles can students take on to try solving this problem?

How might students be asked to work collaboratively to try solving this problem?"

Happy to see this. I am more interested in seeing the best work that someone can do at a given point, and if that takes a couple more days, I'm happy with that, Not interested in running a time-clock learning environment.
