Have you heard about Project Based Learning (PBL)? Are you interested in implementing it, but, are unsure of where to start?  This cohort will dive into this inquiry-driven strategy and explore, experience, engage, and extend (E4) the art of project-based learning.

Participants in the Project-Based Learning Cohort will cover a variety of topics and strategies for seamless implementation of PBL in their classroom.  The cohort, designed for middle and high school teachers, will benefit upper elementary-level educators as well.  Participants will receive sample projects, coaching and technical assistance.
