Check out this great visual on Problem Based Learning (PBL)from Mia MacMeekin. It provides a look at the seven steps found in PBL. For each step she provides a number of ways for students to think about the specific process. What are the seven areas?

1. Start with a real life problem

2. Map it out

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype

4. Be creative

5. Think global

6. Join a challenge

7. Set goals

8. Create learning moments

Along the way she also makes some suggestions on what you should be doing as a teacher. If PBL is new to you (or your students) this would be a great visual to have your students recreate, where they may change words and add images to make it their own. Then hang it in your classroom and support them as they become experienced at problem based learning.

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."

These differentiation flowcharts will prompt teachers to make good decisions around scaffolding of student learning.

Here is a great idea to provide differentiation in homework. The Heat-ometer provides four levels, from mild (not shown in the image above) to medium (also not shown) to hot and extra hot. each level is more complex than the previous level, and 3 options are provided for each level.

The designer of this image also provides links to the original design, which is located at Take Away Homework.

Love this practical suggestion!

Seven Ways to Increase Student Engagement in the Classroom

Lee Hall's curator insight, September 12, 2014 3:52 PM

I plan to use the 3-2-1 method in my very next class. Great ideas.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 13, 2014 9:38 PM

Great graphic that summarizes things we've all heard before, but helps keep them in mind so we really do utilize them with students.
