Q & A Collections: Project-Based Learning

By Larry Ferlazzo — August 03, 2015 1 min read

I’ll begin posting new questions and answers in late August, and during the summer will be sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past four years. You can see all those collections from the first three years here.

Today’s theme - the fourth one in this summer series - is on Project-Based Learning.

Previous updated thematic collections are:

Classroom Management

Student Motivation

Implementing The Common Core

The Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year

Teaching Social Studies

You can see the list of Project-Based Learning posts following this excerpt from one of them:

From 2014/15

Different Ways Of ‘Learning By Doing’

Guest responses in this post come from educators Suzie Boss, Jeffrey Wilhelm, Steven Anderson and Stephen Lazar.

Learning By Doing - Part Two

Jeff C. Marshall, Nancy Sulla, Derek Cabrera, Christopher Panna, and Heather Wolpert-Gawron and Ron Berger all share their thoughts.

From 2013/14

The Best Advice On Doing Project-Based Learning

This post is a Part Two to last year’s popular one by Suzie Boss (and readers!) on Do’s and Don’ts for Better Project-Based Learning. Suzie agreed to share additional ideas this year, as did many readers.

From 2012/13

Do’s and Don’ts for Better Project-Based Learning

Few people know more about Project-Based Learning than Suzie Boss, and she graciously agreed to respond to this “question of the week.”

I hope you’ve found this summary useful and, again, keep those questions coming!
