Andrea Payne's insight:

“Inquiry means living in the soup. Inquiry means living in that uncomfortable space where we don’t know the answer.” 

I just love this quote because it reflects exactly what I love about being in the classroom, and what I try to help the students become comfortable with.  It is fascinating seeing the transformation over the course of the year.  At the beginning, most of the students are incredibly uncomfortable with taking risks and with not knowing the answer, and by the end of the year, many are motivated and inspired to learn by the undertainty!

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 24, 2013 10:06 PM

Gorman begins this post by providing a definition of Project Based Learning that looks at the final project as the "desert." He states "In true Project Based Learning the project uncovers and facilitates the learning of significant content. In PBL there is a balancing of learning that occurs through out the project duration."

He discussed PBL in relation to the four C's (Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking, and Creativity) noting that often PBL becomes too focused on the four C's. There is also the need to make sure that there is sufficient scaffolding for the learners. To assist in learning how to plan there is list of ten ideas that may be considered in the planning process and the first three are listed below (quoted from the post):

* The entry event should show a relationship to the Driving Question promoting a “need to know” of significant content.

* The Driving Question should allow students to uncover the curriculum in a student friendly and understandable manner.

* The PBL planning sheet for students should line up with significant content in the curricular area being studied and assessed.

Gorman has also provided a link to a  PBL Planning Reflection Sheet.

Andrea Payne's insight:

I'm really interested in Alan November's perspective on shifting the ownership of information and learning to students.  I'm looking forward to reading his book.  This shift away from teachers being viewed as the "gatekeepers" of knowledge and toward teachers being facilitators of inquiry and learning really resonates with me.
