About the Author | Comments
In this book, project-based learning expert Suzie Boss explains how real-world projects engage and motivate students while teaching relevant, rigorous content and skills that align with standards and put learners on the path to active citizenship.
You'll learn why students need to be able to identify and solve authentic, project-worthy problems in their own communities and beyond; how to connect with real-world experts, allies, and audiences; and what practical, field-tested strategies are essential for planning, assessing, and using technology to support successful projects.
Project examples are woven throughout the book to show what real-world learning looks like in action, and the resources in the Encore section will help you plan the next steps in your school or classroom.
