The PBL Playbook

You’ve started using PBL in your classroom, and you are committed to doing it. You’re even on the lookout for ways to improve your PBL practice and engage your students. However, you’re probably facing some barriers and obstacles in moving forward. We get it! We are PBL facilitators currently in the classroom, and we have gone through similar PBL trials and failures. We’re ready to use our own experiences and those of the PBL community to help you tackle your problems and offer tools to overcome the hurdles along your journey. We’re calling you to spread the PBL revolution, develop confidence in your own practice, and talk about it with others. You can stay sitting on the bench or you can use the strategies of other PBL teachers who have gone through some of the same problems and come out on top. The PBL Playbook is meant to help you navigate your PBL questions and problems, build your PBL confidence, and add strategies for success to your own playbook!... Show More

Welcome to the PBL Playbook, brought to you by Magnify Learning – where we put teachers back in their sweet spot. Make sure you follow us on Twitter: @magnifylearning, @askgiebs, @MissB103, #PBLPlaybook. 

In this episode, Josh and Andrea sit down with PBL facilitators from Columbus, IN, Secondary Language Arts facilitator Rachelle Antcliff (@RAAntcliff) and Elementary facilitator Raven Chandler (@RavenChandler5), to discuss the idea of school culture within a PBL classroom. At 2:00, they dive into the conversation by addressing two questions – What does a PBL classroom look/feel/sound like? How is that different than the look/sound/feel of a traditional classroom? At 5:17, they discuss the essential elements and things that must be present in the classroom to create a culture where PBL can thrive. At 9:30, they jump into some tips and suggestions for teachers new to PBL to begin to integrate the elements of PBL into their classroom, starting with allowing for student voice and choice. At 12:21, they continue that idea with thoughts on how to set classroom expectations at the beginning of the year using student input to help begin the year with PBL in mind and launch a successful year. At 22:00, they discuss some tools to help create and develop culture that thrives in a PBL environment. At 29:00, they wrap up the episode with some book recommendations based on the conversation (Mindset by Carol Dweck, Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, and PBL Stories and Structures by Magnify Learning Executive Director Ryan Steuer).
