For someone new to teaching or to project-based learning, this workbook simplifies the process without letting go of essential elements that make the project a valuable educational experience. -- Marcia LeCompte
This book is an excellent tool for any educator wanting to implement project-based learning in their classroom. It provides a step-by-step guide that takes you through the thought process-from posing the question for the project-the planning that is involved before implementing the project, the process for implementing the project, assessment of the project, and the background resources needed to begin the process. -- Ellen Asregadoo
It is inspiring to see how our students can make a positive impact on our world when we as educators empower them through project-based learning. This book provides the necessary structures, supports, and encouragement to shift to these dynamic practices so that we can better serve all learners. I have witnessed firsthand the incredible transformation when educators shift practice to embrace the complexities of real-world challenges, and I am excited that this resource will help to spread these powerful learning opportunities to better serve all learners. -- Devin Vodicka
In her introduction to Keep It Real With PBL, Elementary, Jenny Pieratt describes her commitment to be direct with teachers about developing engaging and strong PBL experiences for their students. She has done just that, combining her deep experience from varied perspectives-PBL teacher and colleague, coach, consultant-to provide a straightforward but detailed path to developing high quality PBL opportunities for learners. Jenny is at once optimistic and realistic, encouraging and pragmatic. While this book is designed for teachers just starting out in PBL work, experienced PBL teachers will benefit from the thoroughness of Jenny's descriptions of planning and implementing strong PBL experiences-and will almost surely be introduced to useful new resources as well. -- Rick Lear
