We are excited to announce our all-new online short courses. Led by experienced teachers, Knowles Academy short courses are designed to improve mathematics and science teaching and learning. The number of participants in these courses is capped so that participants can engage in discussions with the instructors and other participants as they explore new tools and strategies to use in their classrooms to increase student engagement.
Through this Knowles Academy online short course, teachers will learn about the Project Planning Pyramid Framework, a tool developed to strengthen the disciplinary content and practices present in projects, in order to help support all students in accessing rigorous math and science through their PBL courses.
Project Planning Pyramid – A Framework for Rigorous Math & Science Projects
Project-based learning (PBL) can be utilized to engage students, but most importantly should be a powerful lever to provide rigorous mathematical and scientific experiences for students. Come learn with us about the Project Planning Pyramid Framework, a tool developed to strengthen the disciplinary content and practices present in projects, in order to help support all students in accessing rigorous math and science through your PBL courses. Walk away with key takeaways for your next project.
Teachers who attend this course will:
- Consider and understand the Project Planning Pyramid and the three elements of the framework for rigorous math and science projects
- Build on their general understanding of PBL as they reflect on their beliefs, knowledge and skills as a PBL teacher in math and science
