A Must Have Rubric for Problem Based Learning (adaptable for HSIE K-6)

A Must Have Rubric for Problem Based Learning (adaptable for HSIE K-6) | HSIE K-6 | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

A handy rubric that can be adapted for HSIE K-6 problem-based learning projects.

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.
