Inquiry/Project Based Learning Resources

Projects should include modeling of how to create the final written or oral product (i.e. use mentor texts of poetry, letters to the editor, a job ad, recipe, business proposal, etc.), reading of text (building knowledge) that requires finding evidence to support the research, speaking, listening and writing. Provide students with texts of varying types and levels and links to quality web sites. Scaffold their learning with Thinking Maps, planning sheets, and status of the class talks. Design the project with the standards in mind. Students should discuss requirements and the rubric in advance so that expectations are clear. 


New Study Shows the Impact of PBL on Student Achievement --Researchers in Michigan show that project-based learning in high-poverty communities can produce statistically significant gains in social studies and informational reading.


Project PLACE (Project-approach to Literacy and Civic Engagement), an initiative at the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. These are project-based units designed for second-grade students.
