Hi all, a colleague recently sent me a question that may be of interest to others, so let me post the question first, then pass on an answer! Here is the question: Hi Don! I am still trying to understand PBL and I am struggling. I have been reading a lot about PBL, and I see many great things about it. But I seem to have problem visualizing how class runs on a daily basis. How do they practice vocabulary? How do they practice sentence/ conversation? Do you mind sharing your lesson plan if you have one written? How can I make sure that students are practicing the target language? I just can't see my students really practicing the language while they are working on the project....I can see them discussing in English and just carrying on conversation in English...But they will memorize their parts for the project and that will be the only time they use the target language.... Am I just afraid to lose control?
