Workshop Options

PBL 201 Improving the Quality of Student Work (prerequisite is PBL 101) **
Leadership Team Workshop (recommended for district or site leadership teams of three or more)  PBL Leadership Team is full.  Names can be added to a waiting list, but there is no guarantee an additional session will be added.  
**The Buck Institute for Education's 201 workshops are three-day, onsite workshops that provide experienced PBL practitioners with in-depth instruction on PBLWorks' Gold Standard Project Based Teaching Practices as well as supported project development time. Facilitated by one of BIE's expert National Faculty, the 201 workshops offer a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration and feedback. Participants will leave the workshops with the beginnings of a new project as well as a deeper understanding of effective PBL facilitation practices. Prerequisite: PBL 101 Workshop. 

The specific PBL 201 Workshop offered at PBL Kansas is titled, "Improving the Quality of Student Work." This 201 focuses on four of the Gold Standard Teaching Practices: Align to Standards, Scaffold Student Learning, Engage & Coach, and Assess Student Learning, asking participants to think about a variety of questions. How do we ensure that the products we ask students to create are rigorous and align to significant content and skills? What strategies can students learn in order to deepen their thinking-- and show evidence of this thinking-- within projects? How can we coach students toward ever-increasing levels of intellectual rigor and quality work? In this engaging and interactive workshop, participants will investigate and apply teaching practices and strategies that can help to strengthen the quality of student work in a PBL classroom. They will develop and reflect on a high-quality project, and will plan for project implementation in order to improve student products and enhance learning. Prerequisite: PBL 101.
