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.

Posted 6/23/2010 7:20pm Telannia NorfarHigh School Math Teacher 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. Sign in to vote!

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!

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! Sign in to vote!

Posted 6/23/2010 7:35pm Sheree Buikema 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! Sign in to vote! Posted 6/23/2010 7:38pm Dawn Lynch Teaching newbie(3 yrs).

Posted 6/23/2010 7:44pm Florence Duarte 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 Florence Sign in to vote!
