Welcome to a new episode of Free Teacher PD: Part 1 of Improve Creativity and Critical Thinking with Problem-Based Learning, with Melissa Edwards.
Are you looking for ways to engage all of your students and stretch their thinking? Would you like to cultivate their creativity and reinforce their critical thinking skills?
Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is a strategy that plays to the strengths of all students, from gifted to struggling, while still providing the challenges needed for learning to happen.
Our speaker today, Melissa Edwards, takes a look at the critical and creative thinking skills that can be addressed using PBL.
She also shares some PBL resources and examples of projects that you can use in your classroom. While the examples covered will focus primarily on elementary students, they can be easily adapted and used with students in a variety of subjects and grade levels.
Let’s get learning!
