Hello, all. I'm excited about finding out about the PBL Camp coming up. I teach at a small high school in Arizona and am interested in finding out more about PBL. I've had exposure to project planning in a prior work incarnation in the Technology field, and am interested in seeing how I could use PBL to engage my students more.

Hello! I am interested in project-based learning because I teach writing, which most of my students have had little exposure to. What better way to make the connection between what I am teaching in the classroom, what my students are learning in other subjects, and how they will use communication skills in the real world? My students quickly respond to writing about their science project or their social studies lesson, instead of bland, meaningless "practice sentences" from a grammar book. Current research suggests the best way to teach grammar is to focus on common mistakes, and let students build their own "grammar book" for reference. I teach vocabulary by having students incorporate weekly vocabulary words into their writing, which builds both their "working" vocabulary and written communication skills.

I have been reading so much lately about PBL and was thrilled to find this camp. I just finished my EdS in brain-based learning through BrainSMART and I think this will be a terrific compliment to the tools I learned there. I teach at-risk kids and PBL seems to be a great key to keeping them involved in learning. Thank you for offering this opportunity and I look forward to sharing and learning from everyone!

I work with three service learning groups: K-5 Student Council, 5th grade Library Service Club and 3rd grade Green Team. In the fall, we will add "Mouse Patrol" technology service learning group. During the school year third grade students worked on the library wiki, especially when they were creating puppet shows! Ok it is still a work in progress: wikis & nine year old students!!!

I write grants all the time to support library programs (like author visits); our arts program which next year will include Opera activities for 12 classes and our ever growing garden program.

Besides my library work, I support teachers & counselors & librarians who are National Board Candidates. I live in San Francisco in the sunny Mission but I work 6 foggy blocks from the Pacific Ocean.
