Wow!!! I want to be that kind of teacher who allows students to have freedom in their learning; very impactful.
Say, do you take foreign teachers? I have taught elementary for 14 years and have no criminal record.I'd like to experience teaching in a US school, don't mind working as a teacher aide.
Sure would like to see the test questions. Interesting!!
Good use of the Naruto music.
For PBL to be effective, there needs to be careful planning in structures, consistency in implementation across disciplines, and buy-in from students that there is a common goal and purpose, on top of many other factors. It takes a team's effort to get it running to provide meaningful education to students.
Sounds good; however, in implementing PBL for several years I can tell you there are many problems. The top students will benefit tremendously. Social loafing is a major problem, major. Some students are diligent in their work and are left with the bulk of the work load, complaining, "it's not fair,"frustrated, up late trying to meet deadlines. For too many, their goal is to latch on to a team with one member or two with the go getter mindset and reap all the benefits. Is this where education is going? Even college?
And we aren't doing this everywhere, why???
This is so cool – especially the fact that it is a public school! PBL has changed the lives of virtually every student lucky enough to be part of a Project/Problem Based Unit. For teachers that would like to teach PBL in their classroom without a large base of support, check out the website: GoTeachGo for complete teacher-friendly, ready-to-teach units.
Is this a charter school? How are the students chosen?
