Ensuring that PBL is not One. More. Thing. in a School and District

To serve the needs of each student who comes through our doors every day, schools and districts implement a variety of different initiatives and programs. It’s easy for teachers and site leaders to become overwhelmed.

There are the standards to teach, and reading program X, writing program Y, or math program Z.  There’s PBIS to manage student behavior, new technology to integrate. There are AVID strategies for college readiness, parent engagement strategies, dropout or truancy prevention programs… the list goes on. It’s no wonder that when a district decides to implement PBL, teachers and site leaders often feel like they cannot possibly do One. More. Thing.
