Today’s post is another of the FAQ:
I received this question in my inbox today from a good Principal friend of mine. His school is pretty much 100% Project-Based Learning, but while his teachers and students are all bought in to the benefits of this model, not all of the surrounding community is. Nor, necessarily, are the teachers in other schools within his district even truly aware of what PBL is…and what it’s not. So this Principal and his staff are trying to provide quick and easy information for people to learn about PBL on their own.
“Dear Ginger, We would like to put a link on the school web page and elsewhere that would be beneficial in explaining PBL to parents of prospective students. Do you have a recommendation on site(s) that would be good for that purpose? Thanks.”
And in quick/easy format, this was my response:

- PBL Explained (a video)
A good beginner curriculum:
