Project-based learning in a geology classroom | Posted in Evaluation and Assessment

I am a pre-service teacher, currently student teaching in a high school geology classroom. I would like to implement more project-based learning with my students. What are some effective strategies that you have found helpful in implementing a project-based learning unit? Also, how do you incorporate collaboration and self-assessment during a project-based learning unit? Any comments or advice would be extremely helpful. Thank you! -Anna Maynard

Hi Anna --

The February issue of NSTA's Science Scope has the theme of project-based learning. Although this is a middle school journal, I suspect that the activities could be ramped up a bit for high school. There are good articles on co-designing projects with students and managing group work.

Margaret, What a wonderful way to include play in an inclusive setting. Play does help with those kinds of concerns about ability. Best, Arlene
