I am feeling such gratitude to have the summer off, for the ability to recharge my batteries, for learning new things which will in turn help my students. There never seems to be enough time in the school year to really delve into new or not so new learning communities. This is a wonderful way to internalize ideas and be ready to apply them this August.

Business Education Teacher grades 9-12 NC

Looking forward to being a part of this group. I teach Computer Applications I and II and I am very interested in developing a project around a real world event. I use projects all the time. Usually they are bases on business concepts, DTP, Stock Market ect. Developing a project around the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico will help me take my students to yet another level of conceptualization.

So glad that this is collaborative effort as my strength is business technology and will need some help incorporating this topic into my standard course of study. There are many ways to spin the project into my SCOS but I want to find the way that will drum up the most interest for my students.

Looking foward to working with all of you this summer.

[quote]Am I missing the post/email with the camp schedule? I'm eager to know how much I can participate within my busy summer.[/quote]

To Elvira Paoletti:

Hi there! You can find an overview of the schedule here. But don't worry, PBL Camp will all happen online, so you can work from anywhere, at any time that's convenient for you. We may have some scheduled events online, but even if you can't make those, we will have archives available. You won't miss out!

Last year I taught 7th grade math and this coming school year I'll be adding life science and PBL. I am very excited about it and looking forward to any helpful ideas I can "borrow".

I will teach 8th grade next year up from 7th this year. The plan is to have it as a self contained class where I teach all subjects general ed with included special ed, since I'll be teaching all subjects and I truly believe students learn from doing, I want to use projects and investigations rather than just lectures and labs. I am so excited to join this group and attend PBL Camp.

Hello, I'm Alex. I teach 8th grade reading in the Poconos as well as a reading course for pre-service teachers at a university. I use PBL in my classroom often, but would like to help my students make their projects even better.

I am excited top be a part of the PBL Camp! I teach achievement,academic, accelerated, and honors level anatomy and physiology at a large public high school just west of Philadelphia. We have block scheduling and my honors class is a block and a half long everyday for a semester! Looking forward to learning how I can use PBL at all levels to encourage learning.
