Teachers: Our Driving Questions
- 4th: How can we, as students/anthropologists, create a new Texas Native American tribe to show others how Native Americans survived and thrived in Texas?
- 1st: How can we as students plan a presentation to teach about a cultural representation of Texas?
Students: Generating Questions/Ideas
- "Need to Knows"
- "Want to Knows"
In PBL, inquiry is a cycle of learning. When confronted with a challenging problem or question, students:
- ask questions
- find resources to help answer their questions
- then ask deeper questions
- incorporate more 'real world' information sources- interviews with experts/users/providers
The process repeats until a satisfactory solution or answer is developed.
Reflection, Sharing, Planning
2. As a team, decide on a method for presenting your PBL plan to everyone. You may choose any form of presentation (poster, Power Point, skit, video, etc). Your presentation should include:
- Driving Question
- PBL Overview
- Rationale for PBL vs. Project
3. Continue working as a team to plan and prep for upcoming PBL implementation.
