Guide to creating a project
"I’ve got a great idea for a project. Now what?"
When designing a project, there are some simple steps to take that can help maximize your results with the project. There are many ways to create a project, as well as many things that can go in any project, but these links are a basic skeleton of how a project is created.
Remember, just like any other lesson, the more often your students complete a specific project, the more it will be tweaked to fit the needs of the students. Do your best not to compare your first few projects with other teachers who have been teaching in a PBL rich environment for many years and have projects that seem to have everything. That can be discouraging and cause you to doubt having a PBL classroom.
