What to do with an Idea

Sometimes coming up with a project idea, or knowing how to start with an idea can be the toughest part of Project-based Learning (PBL). Based on the inspiration of the book “What to do with an Idea”, we will embark on a journey of a series of project ideas-from inception to exhibition. We will look in ordinary to extraordinary places for project potential, and participate in a series of brainstorming protocols to help us make interdisciplinary content connections to our ideas. Ultimately we will develop our ideas into the building blocks for authentic and rigorous project plans. All levels of experience with PBL are welcome!

Ok, so you are comfortable with the idea of PBL but not sure how to make it fit with all those dirty words-standards, structures and assessment ?! Join us as we get down and dirty with developing the “the bones” of a high quality project. Together we will explore big picture mapping-including the role of standards, how to create the foundation for authentic projects, and how to integrate best practices of formative assessment in your project plans. Note: if you are interested in this workshop it is helpful if you come prepared with standards and/or a unit for project planning potential!
