This is an intense 2-day clinic for elementary and secondary curriculum & instruction coaches who want to to better support their teachers as they begin implementing long term Project and Problem Based Learning and civic engagement opportunities across schools and districts. Many coaches, while understanding the basic concepts of PBL may never have taught in a PBL classroom and find themselves struggling to answer some of the typical beginner-level questions from teachers.

This clinic is being facilitated in a PBL style by Ginger Lewman and Katie Perez, both of whom have extensive experience as PBL teachers, K-12, but also have years of experience coaching educators from all backgrounds into and through the realities of PBL.


Some of the questions addressed will be:
*Where do new-to-PBL teachers stumble?
*What are the big questions teachers are left with when facing kids and a blank lesson planning document after a quick 2-day PBL training?
*How can we support a teacher trying to shift a favorite “project” into a “PBL?”
*Giving and receiving feedback for growth.
*Encouraging content integration.
*Shifting teachers from more content-driven to more universal skills-driven learning.
*Encouraging and helping to coordinate/facilitate collaboration between classes across school, district, state, nation, world-wide and between various age-groups.
*Moving from more school-flavored PBL into more outside world PBL.
*Moving from more teacher-ignited PBL to more student-ignited PBL.
*What happens when we need to communicate to parents what & why we’re doing school differently?
*How do we evaluate their progress not just for coaching, but also for supporting our administration in their teacher-evaluation process?

What are top suggestions when a teacher is reluctant in moving forward?

How do I start to support PBL-style professional learning? How do I role model what I’m coaching?
*How can we start advocating for a better system structure that reflects learning instead of the old-style structures of “school?” ie, bell schedule? Grading system? Report cards? Grade-levels based on age? Adequate tech supports to enable student-centered learning?

And more, customized to the needs of the coaches attending these trainings.

NOTE: this is not a PBL-training. Before taking this course, it is highly recommended that each participant have had some form of in-depth PBL training for educators.

All attending coaches will be expected to understand the basic “what & why” of PBL including at least 8 of the following concepts:

*What is PBL and how is it different from “doing projects.”
*Which of our students are greatest affected by PBL?
*What’s the basic structure of PBL? And what does it feel like from a learner’s point of view?
*Why do we want to build that environment of optimal ambiguity?
*What skills are enhanced with this approach?
*Soft & Hard deadline structure with constructive peer feedback in the process.
*Basic tech tools for collaboration, connecting, presentation, & publishing.
*Content and age collaboration.
*Basic unit planning structures.
