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:

  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
