One of the scariest things about deciding to use a project-based learning approach with your students is letting go. My experience has been that even the most creative teachers who have taken the leap into the PBL waters continue to find it difficult to let go of their role as teacher, despite having the best intentions for their students.
I just signed up to take part in an online book chat that is starting June 21. I learned about this thanks to a tweet from @Joe_Mazza. The book is "Beyond the Bakesale" by Anne Henderson and Karen Mapp (http://amzn.to/1nrXcHo) and Joe says they will be part of the conversation too.

As many schools are approaching the end of the year, you or your child might be looking for ways to show your appreciation for a special teacher. The end of the year wrap-up is a perfect time to write a thoughtful thank-you letter to express your gratitude.
We know that students are eagerly awaiting summer vacation, but taking a minute away from the excitement to reflect on and share their experiences from the year can brighten a teacher’s day tremendously.
Edutopia I would love to see a sight for districts where aps are organized, sites are organized, with standards, subjects, topics etc...for easy access, navigation, and visually organized and user friendly, and a place to discuss and maybe even make decisions within each district. This might make hard copy curriculum obsolete and more money for the district. Are there such sights in use right now? I envision it being like a cloud so access is easy and maybe list each school etc. If this hasn't been created, I guess I am wondering why?
