This post provides four areas that are covered in project-based learning. Each area has four questions, that will help students understand the process. Four of the questions are in the image above. Can you determine which area they fall into?

The four areas covered are:

* Connect & Analyze

* Research & Contextualize

* Imagine & Design

* Act & Socialize

Click through to the post to see the other questions. If you will be doing project-based learning with your students you may want to  save a copy of the questions to  share with your students.
