PBL DEEP DIVE
In this immersive full-day workshop, spend your day with teachers and administrators who “live and breathe” PBL and can guide you through specific practices related to your content area or teaching practice. During our time together, we will dive deeply into planning and tips for managing rigorous PBL while addressing your questions and concerns. Experience with or a commitment to PBL instruction, in addition to previous PBL training, is recommended for these workshop. Registration is $199 with lunch included.
This three-day workshop engages participants in learning how to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, relevant, standards- focused project. The workshop models the project process. This workshop is a balanced blend of direct instruction, video analysis, hands-on work, resource sharing, and peer collaboration. Participants have substantial time to plan their own project and receive formative feedback from peers and the facilitator. Registration is $499.
VIRTUAL PBL COACHING
Connect with an experienced PBL teacher to talk through project ideas, get feedback on project plans, troubleshoot during project roll-outs, or debrief after a project is finished. Sessions can be conducted via phone or video conference at a time convenient for both parties. Sessions are $50 per hour.

ONLINE BOOK STUDY - PBL in the Math Classroom
PBL in the Math Classroom explains how to keep inquiry at the heart of mathematics teaching and helps teachers build students' abilities to be true mathematicians. The book describes how PBL and inquiry work together in a math classroom and includes structures, processes and strategies for creating those experiences in your own classroom. The book also includes sample projects to implement or to inspire you to create your own. This book study is facilitated by a veteran math teacher using PBL in her classroom and by a PBL coach.
This 15-hour online book study is self-paced for users to complete the registered course. The study will last from January 13th - February 21st. Participants must purchase their own copy of PBL in the Math Classroom. An optional one hour of Ashland University graduate credit is available for $249.00.
