Teach middle school math and science in rural Maine, USA. Looking to try PBL at some level with my students as they are a group that thrives on work for meaning! Relevance rocks.

Hi everyone. I teach 10-12 year olds in a small school in Co Donegal in Ireland. I was working out of the classroom for 10 years and just started back in Sept. I am learning to teach again and trying to catch up with the developments in technology since I left the classroom. I really want to use a project based curriculum in my classroom but am struggling a bit. As yet I don't have a lot to offer here but I hope I'll get ideas and will share as soon as I get started!

I'm entering my second year in a 100% project based learning environment. I would love to build a community of sharing amongst those us that are practicing this in our classrooms.

I love the challenge of deciding what to focus the project on. I find I can't cover everything (I teach MS history), so what I choose has real weight. It is great for skills learning - critical in middle school - but I find I often feel I am skimming over some topics to get to where I want them to be for the next project.

I am doing the Constitutional Convention right now, each student building an identify as a representative from a certain state. It is great, but I blew through the causes of the war at 90 miles an hour to get time for it.

An interesting dilemna!

Daycare or Preschool: Which Is Better for Your Child

If you are trying to decide which one you should choose for your child, first look at your child's abilities. Would they be better suited for a preschool environment where they can explore and learn, or would they do better in a less structured environment like a daycare?

Use these two words and become a better student

Words are powerful.And you do not only know that since your last exam. A single word can change everything: it can make you the victor, save relationships, calm you down or pull you into the abyss.Finding the right words is an art that not everyone masters. Some use their words inflationary and put one empty phrase to the next. Others put every word on the gold scale and interpret everything possible into what is said.But your choice of words not only affects how other people perceive you. Your…See More

Online Education: Can It Really Replace Learning in Classrooms?
