Modules Table of Contents

The steps to develop a standards-focused project, and better understand PBL, are listed here. Modules 0-2 address how to use this site to maximize your participatory learning and the core of PBL. The rest of the module digs into developing your PBL unit/mini unit. If you are building a PBL experience from scratch, and already understand the concept of Standards-Focused PBL, start with Module 3. If you have an existing project and are looking to revise or tweak it, start at the module that bests suits you; although, you should at least read through all of the modules to build familiarity with the approach we are taking. Facilitated Cohorts need to go through all modules and reflections.
