PBL and Literacy-Based Learning: PBL PLC Series
January 27, 2021 | 7:00-8:00 pm EST (New York City time zone)
This session is held online
Facilitator: Cheryl Dobbertin
Registration and participation in this PLC is FREE
Project-Based Learning nearly always calls for students to employ their literacy skills independently as they research to extend their knowledge, develop solutions, and as they communicate with each other, the teacher, and authentic audiences. Many students, however, are not yet proficient with these skills. This can be a concern that causes teachers to shy away from PBL, worried that their students "are not ready." In this session we will explore the importance of PBL in supporting students' literacy development and ways to structure projects so that all students can participate in literacy-based learning.
Interested in attaining graduate credit for attending these PLCs? Here's how. Attend 8 PLC topics of your choice. Write a brief summary of how each PLC topic resonated with you and your practice. Submit all of your reflections to Teresa Dempsey by June 1, 2021. Contact Rob Engel for an Ashland registration link coming soon! One-hour Ashland University option available for $249. Fairfield County educators may purchase graduate credit for $195.
“We Want a PBL Learning Community!” You asked for it, you got it!
PBLers - both new and experienced, have been asking for a way to stay connected this year as most of us will likely be embarking upon some type of digital PBL journey with our students. We know this is daunting and can feel lonely. PBLMatters is proud to create a FREE PBL PLC (professional learning community) series to help you be successful. Our goal is to connect you with PBL experts in the field and to establish a community of fellow PBL teachers that can routinely meet and share questions, solutions, and strategies. Each PBL PLC session will have a specialized topic and begin with an introduction by a featured guest speaker with time for Q/A and breakout sessions with other teachers. Our plan is to create an ongoing series of PBL PLC convenings. Stay tuned to see an offering about every 2 weeks. Please share these FREE PBL PLC opportunities with your colleagues!
