FREE - Project Based Learning Planner- Digital and Paper/Pencil
Have an idea for an online or hands on project? Empower your students while they meet academic standards with Project Based Learning.
Let this PBL unit planner help you channel your ideas into a curriculum unit that meets authentic needs with real student-created digital or physical products for an authentic audience.
Presented in three formats for your versatile use- Microsoft Word, a fillable Word form and Google Docs- this planner covers all aspects of your PBL project, from basic idea to assessment to timeline for implementation.
The first section, Overview, begins with your general ideas. It will help you consider the best product your students could produce, who might be involved, the time you can invest in the project, and how it will meet academic standards.
The second section, Drilling Down, offers questions to guide planning the research and resources needed for the final product, possible differentiation elements, funding sources, and assessment.
Timeline, the final section, walks you through making a calendar for your PBL unit.
Once you try PBL, you will use the questions and concepts in this planner over and over to create meaningful and lasting projects that build and honor agency in your students' academic work.
