Transcript of The Marriage of CSCOPE and PBL

I used to think.......
that I was completely responsible for
my students' learning.
but now I think....
that I am responsible for guiding them
while they take ownership for their own
The Marriage of CSCOPE and Project Based Learning
This is accomplished through interdisciplanary projects better known as project based learning.
Wagner recognizes 7 Survival Skills for the 21st Century
1. Critical thinking and problem solving
2. Collaboration across networks and leading by influence
3. Agility and adaptability
4. Initiative and entrepreneurship
5. Effective oral and written communication
6. Assessing and analyzing information
7. Curiosity and imagination

What is
PBL is a set of learning experiences and tasks that guide students in inquiry answering a central question, solving a problem, or meeting a challenge.
PBL is not a string of activities tied together under a theme or concept.
2 - Entry Event
An entry event engages student interest and initiates questioning. An entry event can be a guest speaker, video, discussion question, field trip, or any other way you can think to initiate interest.
There are 8 Essentials for PBL
DQ (Driving Question)
A DQ is the heart of the project and should reflect exactly what you want your students to learn. It should be open ended, inviting students to inquire.
It clearly states the purpose of a project and since it is in the form of a question, it leads students to an inquiry process.
Example from Algebra II: How can we build a device to launch a projectile, and calculate its motion in order to hit a target?
Example from science: How can we stop the spread of infectious disease?
Example from History & Reading: How do we create a podcast to debunk myths and stereotypes of world religions?

Steps to Success
Begin With the End in Mind
Create project learning outcomes, linking them to the TEKS
ELAR Entry Event
3 - Need to Know
Activity: What will be the final project requirements? Add to your Project Overview Sheet. Provide guidelines for your students to work within while still allowing voice and choice.
Problem finding
in order to problem solve....

Students have to list potential problems with their topic and write a problem statement. With the driving question in mind, they have to come up with some questions to help guide their research as they search for answers. Then they have to come up with a solution.

To answer a Driving Question and create higher quality work, students need to do much more than remember information. They need to use higher-ordered thinking skills, communicate, collaborate, problem solve, and learn to work as a team.
Activity: Look at the 21st century skills rubric and discuss with your group which skills you will need to explicitly teach and assess; add to your Project Overview Sheet. Be prepared to share.

4 - Voice and Choice
5 - 21st Century Skills
6 - In depth inquiry
The DQ invites the inquire process. The real inquiry takes place as students begin their research, find other questions they want to discover answers to, and investigate those new questions.
7 - Reflection and Revision

2 essential rubrics
1. content knowledge
2. presentation and collaboration rubric
Activity: Go to
http://www.bie.org/tools/freebies/cat/rubrics or the shared google folder and view a presentation and collaboration rubric.

How can students use the rubrics to give feedback to their peers on the presentation?

8 - Present to the Public
When student present their work to a real audience, they value their time and effort in the project

Who would be your presentation audience for this project? Record on your Project Overview Sheet



Edmodo or Poll question
Project Based Learning

Resource for creating a Driving Question: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/pbl-how-to-refine-driving-questions-andrew-miller
Activity: Now you try it - you have 8 minutes to search for a video or other media to use as a possible entry event for your project. Add your entry event to your Project Overview Sheet.
Activity: Get together with a partner and pick one low performing TEKS from your subject area/grade level or use the information from the provided performance indicator. Create a driving question for your PBL. Use your "Project Overview Sheet" to record your DQ.
