Watch Gold Standard PBL in Action
PBLWorks produced these 7- to 10-minute videos to showcase examples of Gold Standard PBL projects from a variety of grade levels, subject areas and settings. They capture the nuts and bolts of a PBL unit from beginning to end.
Each shows four phases of the project:
- The launch (entry event and driving question)
- Building knowledge and skills
- Developing products and answers to the driving question
- Presenting products and answers to the driving question
