Problem-based Learning in the English Classroom

Presented by Ish Stabosz
Session Type: Practice

Problem-based learning (or PBL) is an instructional strategy which gets students thinking critically about subject matter by forcing them to engage deeply and actively in authentic problems. PBL is often considered most fitting for the math or science classroom, but in this workshop, Ish Stabosz will demonstrate that PBL can work for English teachers too. In addition to being presented with one model of PBL in the English classroom, participants will also have a chance to brainstorm methods of implementing it in their own classes.
