Knowledge in Action Research: Student Demographics

Knowledge in Action Research: Student Demographics | Using PBL to create a dynamic learning environment for all learners | Scoop.it
The Knowledge in Action Project was first introduced Bellevue, WA, and continues to expand into the Des Moines Public Schools in Iowa, the Envision Charter Network in San Francisco, and Seattle Public Schools.
Christie Correll Buchmann's insight:

This resource discusses an on-going PBL study in its fourth year.  The use of PBL has shown significant student growth across all student groups, taking into account socio-economics and ethnicity.  The teachers and students chosen are students in AP government and environmental science courses. There was not a prerequisite that teachers or students be familiar with AP classwork.

 

The study does not include traditional classroom settings or encompass general education students.  It does state that high functioning students were identified and strongly encouraged to take AP classes in all school settings from urban, low performing schools to suburban high performing schools. 

 

There are plans to expand into other content areas but it does not state that the expansion will reach out to general education classrooms. The study does not elaborate on which school corporations or states will take part in the expansion.

Christie Correll Buchmann's insight:

This is a study every educator should read.  While PBL is traditionally taught in classrooms made up of high ability students, Shelagh Gallagher presents powerful research that demonstrates the need for students of all abilities to engage in project/problem based learning.  General education and other marginalized student groups have untapped potential just waiting to be unlocked.  Her findings should ignite a fire within all educators to utilize PBL at some level in the classroom.
