Why Should I Consider Implementing Project Based Learning in my Classroom?

According to the Buck Institute for Education, "To help teachers do PBL well, we created a comprehensive, research-based model for PBL – a “gold standard” to help teachers, schools, and organizations to measure, calibrate, and improve their practice. This term is used in many industries and fields to indicate the highest quality process or product. Our conception of Gold Standard PBL has three parts: 1) Student Learning Goals (in the center of the diagram [above]) 2) Essential Project Design Elements (shown in the red sections of the diagram), and 3) Project Based Teaching Practices" (www.bie.org).
