Start planning your next PBL project with confidence, using this step-by-step form as your guide.
Why is a project planner important?
When you’re ready to design a project for your classroom, it’s helpful to have a framework to capture your ideas and organize your plans.
A Gold Standard PBL unit has a lot of pieces to plan: your goals for student learning, entry event and driving question, major product(s) students will create, daily lessons, and more.
It’s also a good idea for a school to use a common framework for PBL unit planning, so teachers can collaborate using the same language, and share projects more easily with colleagues.
So we’ve created a Project Planner to support you in the planning process.
The Project Planner has five parts:
1. Project Overview: Key features of your project
2. Learning Goals: Standards, success skills, literacy skills, rubrics
3. Project Milestones: Significant steps in the project
4. Project Calendar: Day-by-day activities in the project
5. Lesson Planner: Supporting resource with guidance on planning daily lessons to meet the needs of all learners
