I just finished my Physics ABQ, so now I’ll have three subject qualifications (Math, General Science, and Physics).
As part of the final collaborative inquiry project, we are required to share it somehow. Since I am not teaching right now, I thought I would share it via Twitter and my blog.
Here’s a summary of our project:
Group Topic: Problem-Based Learning
Focus: Getting Started Using Problem-Based Learning in the Classroom
Sub-topics: What is problem-based learning?
How can we implement PBL in the classroom?
What does the research say about PBL? (pros/cons)
There were 3 of us in the group, and we each researched one of the questions (I did the last one). Here is a link to the Google slides presentation we put together.
One piece of feedback that we received was it would have been nice to show an example lesson plan or how it could have been incorporated into a high school science classroom specifically. I completely agree, and gave similar feedback to other groups. So, something to keep in mind for future collaborative projects!
If you’re in need of a beginner’s guide to PBL and/or know any other teachers who may benefit, check it out and pass it on!
