What is Problem Based Learning (PBL)
First let me ask you a question about how you learn...what sticks out in your mind, do you still remember learning
how to ride a bike? How to drive a car? I do, and the reason is because both of these experiences were difficult,
involved making mistakes, and although I learned with coaching, I was the one doing the learning...I found out what worked
and what didn't.
PBL works in the same way, students are given a topic question and they sit behind the wheel, they are the drivers
and we, the teachers, are the coaches. My Unit plan is a model of PBL...this is an original "Christine" creation
based on what I learned in my first class at UTA 5309 Advanced Instructional Strategies. Please bear
with me while I add information and modify existing information. Please provide feedback if I've neglected to include
something you would like to see.
