I'm excited to be a member of PBL camp! I teach 5th grade in New Hampshire and have wanted to delve into PBL, particularly in science, but haven't taken the first step, until now.

I also joined this camp to help me deepen my instruction of the history and social studies of our region. It is also important to tie in other subjects like science, health, the arts, and physical education in addition to language arts and math. Students really love projects. Their parents like them too - especially when they are mostly done in the classroom!

Although I thought that I was pretty good at using the computer, I see that I need to learn how to use things like Twitter and Delicious as tools to stay connected. This is the scary part for me!

Grades 3-5 teacher, Portland, ME
I taught at a small private Jewish day school for 6 years while earning my public school certification and MSEd. I am currently searching for a permanent position, after having had 3 long-term sub. positions as well as a one-year position, all in local public schools. This is not a good time to be looking for an elementary school teaching position! I look forward to this class experience so that I can use my learning in my very own classroom!

This camp was offered right on time, as I am revamping the math department curriculum!!! I've been teaching middle school math for seven years now, but I just concluded my 10th year in this profession. Woo Hoo!!!!
I work at a small, fantastic school in Bushwick, Brooklyn and I am the only middle school math teacher, and one 8th grade science. i know...crazy. I enjoy teaching and always looking for creative ways to reach my students abilities. So, I hope this camp allows me to make this year the beginning of a new way of teaching for me and learning from my students.

Hello! I'm a middle school teacher from Northern California who has yet to figure out why she is teaching middle school! I had always planned on teaching high school. Life had other plans...doesn't it always.

I'm really looking forward to this camp as I would like to use PBL in my classroom more next year.

Hi Campers, I joined camp to learn more about PBL. I teach 7th & 8th grade high achieving students in a Junior High setting. I would like my students to look at technology as not just a fun but also a learning experience with real life applications. I have had my students ask why I had them do an assigment and was shocked when I realized that they could go deeper and I needed to let them have the experirnce. I am excited to see where BPL can take my student & myself this year.

I joined this camp as a means to keep myself from going crazy this summer. I'm used to teaching remedation classes and extended school year courses throughout the summer. This is the first year in which i have not taught summer school and am going a bit stir crazy. As a geography teacher here in New Orleans I hope to be able to take back a lesson on the Gulf Oil Spill that is relevent to my students.

Howdy to all. I have been offering my students pbl for a number of years - every since I became an Intel Master teacher. I look forward to refreshing my skills and coming up with new ideas for my media classes - epecially my broadcast students. My district is moving toward more pbl this year. I allow my students to modify projects to meet their own needs and interests. My students also use the virtual reality program Quest Atlantis in their studies.

Let's Get Started!
