I forgot to mention that I am in Orlando, FL, and will be teaching a new course that is still in development: government, Civics, and Career Planning for 7th grade. I will have three classes of this, plus 3 classes of 7th grade Language Arts. One of the requirements of the social studies course is to do a public service project, so this is a perfect time with so many problems facing us right now, as well as this course being offered, to plan a really memorable and meaningful project.

I teach in a Title 1 public elementary school that is building a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. I have been introducing more and more inquiry into my classroom in the last 3 years and project based and service learning are logical additions. My students will benefit greatly!

Hi. I am both an administrator and teacher. I work for a small university in GA. I coordinate a First Year Experience program for incoming freshman. I have a friend who has been on Edutoia for some time now and he rants and raves about the contact and information that he receives on many topics. The thought of a summer project based workshop is great! I have found it difficult to get students to become engaged in materials and events outside of their own existence, so I am hoping to obtain some valuable information, resources, and skills that will help in making students aware of their civic and educational responsibilities. I am also looking forward to learning some things for myself as well.

So glad that Edutopia is offering this camp. I work with teachers implementing PBL in a large urban school system. This should be invaluable information that I can share with my colleagues.

Hello to all of you that will be joining in the class. I am excited to learn more about PBL. I taught high school science in the classroom for 7 years and am now working with a publishing company with the online science curriculum. I am hoping to get some ideas how to incorporate PBL into the curriculum. I think the hands-on real life examples that PBL uses are the best way for students to learn and they can witness its application. Thanks for hosting!

I am thrilled to join this online group. I facilitate professional development for teachers, and would love to be able to include more information and resources about PBL to them in the workshops that I conduct. Thanks!
