I am an arts integration specialist at a small elementary school in central Ohio. We have grades k-4. My bachelor's degree is in (visual)art education. I also teach one class of art for early childhood education majors in a nearby university.

I am interested in collaborating with you on this PBL program.

Greetings all,
I am excited about discussing PBL with all of you. I have implemented PBL in my classroom for the last 5 years. I have attended a formal PBL training in IL, read Susie's book as well as use the model established by Buck Institute. It varies what I teach from year to year but I have taught Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II.

I am looking forward to revamping my PBL skills and finding new tech ideas for my students. We aso have been working on differentiating instruction in our building, so I am looking for further tips and ideas to pass on to the reg ed staff. Looking forward to this "camp" experience!

I teach two half-day Kindergarten classes at a public school in Reno, NV. I incorporate PBL but would like to go further. Finding this class was so cool as I was in the process of researching PBL to get ready for the new school year (we start in July). We have a wetland habitat near our school which I access with the students for our studies on animals of the Reno area. I was thinking of correlating the importance of maintaining our wetlands with the Gulf Crisis and the impact on the animals there. Looking forward to an interesting class!

I have been using PBL for the past 6 years and I really love it. One unit I do asks students to create design plans for an environmentally friendly invention of the future. Some students go on to actually create their invention, and others tests various components of it as part of their science fair projects. I struggle with getting the students started each year as well as finding experts in the field to help them (their projects are so much better if they can get advice from experts in a specific field). I am hoping to collaborate with you all as well as make contacts for the future. I am excited about working together!

Teaching newbie(3 yrs). PBL looks like the answer to my quest to make sure learning is engaging, enduring, and owned by my students. VERY excited to learn all I can. (suburban mid sized school in KY)

Hi, I will be entering a new phase in my career in the fall...I'm going from a Resource Room to co-teaching at the high school level. I have always believed in project based learning/assessment so when I received the email, I knew this was for me.

Hi to all. I am very ancious looking forward for the pbl summer camp. I know that will be an experience to lean and the practice with my students. Is an answer of my deepest desires because right now i'm working with the projects that my students will make the next academic year. Will be fun and very exciting experience to learn, learn and learn.

Thank you for the invitation; I am as-we-speak planning a unit for my 8th grade science that gravitates arond the gulf oil spill. My idea is to combine an environmental science/physics/robotics and ask my students to design/build/and test lego robots that can accomplish a mission that helps gulf oil victims. Robots could clean the water, or stop the leakeage, or wash birds, etc.. etc.. etc...
I am glad I am not alone in this
Thanks for the invite
