What a great opportunity to improve my PBL skills and connect with like-minded folks! I'm looking forward to the practice and discussion.

In my middle school, our Language Arts and Social Studies teachers collaborate on project ideas that are thematically connected. In grade 7 our theme deals with the environment, so I hope to come away with ideas and inspiration.

I teach language arts to 7th and 8th grade gifted students in a small town in eastern North Carolina. I have read much about PBL during my graduate studies, and I have been wanting to incorporate it into my lessons, although I have been a little hesitant to do so till now. I see this "camp" as an opportunity for me to take PBL and run with it!

Greetings fellow campers!

I'm looking foward to experiencing PBL Camp and having this wonderful collaborative opportunity with you all. I'm very interested in learning how to incorporate PBL into my classroom this school year and sharing this with my colleagues.

This sounds like an ideal camp...free...no snakes, no bugs - no mosquitoes. =)

I am looking forward to this summer workshop on PBL and am hoping to learn more, specifically how I can integrate it into the Springboard curriculum our district has adopted. Having only been teaching seven years, I still reflect back on my many years of corporate experience and want to share with my students real-time applications. I believe I'll be able to achieve this through project based learning.

Online Student Support Specialist at kaskaskia College

I have an A.A.S. in Computer Applications and certificates in Accounting and Web Design. I am working on a Bachelor's Degree in Instructional Design and Technology through Walden University in an online environment. This will aid me in my current position as the Online Student Support Specialist at Kaskaskia College (KC). I work closely with students and faculty who are enrolled or instruct online classes. I am also the instructor for an online orientation, which all new online students must complete before beginning their online courses. I enjoy crocheting and traveling with my family in my free time.
I have been an elected township trustee for the last 13 years. Since we are a very small township, our biggest issues are maintenance of roads and bridges. I am also a trustee for my parish and currently serve on the finance council. I have also served as the pastoral council president for 8 yrs before being assigned trustee duties. Today I am very active in the Shalom group that operates in the community that my church is located. I assist with the monthly food and clothing giveaways. There is a lot of poverty in this area because of the lack of jobs. Over the last 5yrs, southern Illinois has seen the poverty level more than triple because factories have shut their doors and numerous stores have closed. I would like to see jobs and businesses move back into this area before southern Illinois becomes an area with several abandoned communities.

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.
