Watch Gold Standard PBL in Action

These 7- to 10-minute videos show examples of Gold Standard PBL projects in action – across many grade levels, subject areas, and settings. 

Each shows four phases of the project...

  1. The launch (entry event and driving question) 
  2. Building knowledge and skills
  3. Developing products and answers to the driving question
  4. Presenting products and answers to the driving question

They capture the nuts and bolts of a PBL unit from beginning to end. Let's get started!
