I Implemented Project-Based Learning in My Classroom, and You Can Too!

Before project-based learning, I had zero buy-in during my lessons. PBL transformed my classroom, and it can transform yours too. Learn the planning process and routines that work in real classrooms.

I'm Ready to Launch PBL

My first attempts at project-based learning were anything but glamorous.

I struggled with how much support to actually give them.

My students struggled with accountability. 

We failed, a lot.

Something amazing happened in the process.

My students who had poor participation, attendance, and attitude started to actually do things.

They participated in activities and even attempted math and reading problems.

They even started coming to school more often.

It's your turn to implement project-based learning, without the overwhelm.

What I've learned in the past ten years of implementing project-based learning in the classroom is that it doesn't have to be overwhelming. You just need the right tools and planning process to make it happen.

I'm Ready to Launch PBL

It doesn't have to be a struggle.

Step-By-Step Process

In this course, I teach you the complete process I use to plan project-based learning. I give you all the planning tools you need, and I walk you through it all in simple, easy to understand steps.

Implementation Success

The implementation modules give you the tools you need to implement your project without stress and overwhelm. From classroom management to grading, I take the mystery off of running PBL.

Certificate of Completion

An 8-hour Certificate of Completion is provided at the end of this course to show that you have been trained on project-based learning planning and implementation.

Launch PBL Training Modules

This self-paced course is built to help you succeed in every step of the process. Each module includes videos and downloadable content to help you actually implement what you're learning.

In Module 1, we'll review the basic elements of project based learning. I'll explain what each element means, and what it really looks like in the classroom. After this module, you'll understand each piece that needs to be a part of your PBL planning.

Module 2 is where the bulk of your lesson planning will take place. I'll teach you exactly how to brainstorm an engaging topic and work in all of the elements of PBL. You'll get a planning template, and examples of how to customize the template when creating your own lesson plan. You'll also learn everything you need to know about writing a quality driving question. At the end of the module, you will turn in a lesson plan to me for feedback. I want to help you make everything work before you move on to pacing your lesson!

Additional Resources: Planning outline pages, student critique forms, editable driving question slips

Once you have a clearly defined driving question and an outline of your project, I'll teach you how to sketch out a flexible pacing calendar. Module 3 focuses on the importance of "Need to Know" lists in planning a flexible pace for your PBL. Check out the awesome examples included in this module!

Additional Resources: Editable pacing calendar

In this module, we get into the nitty gritty of implementing your planned project based learning activity. I teach you all of the procedures you need to teach your students in order to successfully work together in this type of classroom structure. I use all of my experience to give you recommendations on how to setup these procedures - and how to keep the chaos level at zero.

Additional Resources: Student procedure pages

Module 5 discusses how to easily differentiate instruction during project based learning. Hint: You don't need completely different lesson plans for each kid! The simple strategies I give you will help ensure that all of the different needs in your classroom (or homeschool) are met.

Additional Resources: Differentiation planning pages

One of the biggest fears you may have is that some of your students might not be manageable in this kind of learning environment. In Module 6, I explain how to manage behavior during project based learning. I give specific examples of common issues, and how I personally addressed them in my classroom.

As your PBL progresses, you're going to start wondering about grading student work. In this module, I talk about how to give smaller grades throughout the project (for teachers required to input grades daily or weekly), and how I use rubrics to fairly grade individual student output. I even share a sample rubric.

I'm Ready to Launch PBL

What's holding you back?

I don't have extra time

Project-based learning isn't an extra task, it is meant to replace your regular lessons. You'll still do mini-lessons and small group lessons, but all of the learning you do will be a related to your project.

We have a very specific standards calendar

So did I when I started! In this course, we focus on creating standards-based PBL. This means that you use core standards (the ones on your calendar) to plan our projects. Then, other standards are naturally spiraled in! 

My students already struggle with classwork

I believe in scaffolding PBL as much as you need for your particular students. That being said, students will grow to be more independent as they work within the procedures you put into place.

My students have limitations

PBL is a good fit for most students. Students with learning disabilities have reported that protect-based learning enhanced their engagement in the learning process. (1)
