If you’re a principal or part of a school’s admin team, you might need to investigate PBL before deciding whether to pursue it, or to share information about PBL with staff, parents, and other stakeholders. Take a look at our books, articles, and videos that explain the what, why and how of PBL. If your school, or some teachers in it, is already committed to PBL, perhaps you need help in making the effort successful and sustainable. Check out resources like our rubrics for 21st century competencies, to promote shared definitions and assessments across a school or grade level, or our project planning forms, to establish common PBL design practices.
