About the Out of the Gate Project
The Out of the Gate project explores and examines the use of Project Based Learning (PBL) by Teacher Education Program (TEP) faculty to prepare preservice teachers to teach PBL “out of the gate,” so they enter K-12 public school districts ready to engage all students in meaningful deeper learning. The goal of this project is to build the capacity of TEP faculty to teach and support preservice teachers to use PBL as an instructional method for all students, including those who are furthest from opportunity (i.e., students who are living in poverty, students of color).
Thanks to generous funding from ECMC Foundation, BIE is providing customized professional development to faculty, and preservice and cooperating teachers at four teacher education programs and 12 district partners in four states, identified below. Learn more about this project here.
