The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

I am looking for fantastic reading material for the summer. I am all into integrating 21st century skills and project-based learning into daily instruction. What are some good reading resources for 21st century and elementary also Project-Based Learning??

 

Thanks

Although primarily for ELT/ESL I think [Willis, D., & Willis, J. (2007). Doing task-based teaching. Oxford: Oxford University Press.] is worth a look for a generalizable approach to this. Projects are, of course, constructed from smaller tasks, but the methodology is still sound for any subject/content area. You can read an online article about Jane and Dave's approach at Task-Based Language Teaching › Dave & Jane Willis answer TBLT q....
Again EFL/ESL but you may get some useful pointers from [Brinton, D. M., Snow, M. A., & Wesche, M. B. (1989). Content-based second language instruction. New York: Newbury House.]
Enjoy your reading!
