Guiding Questions When Designing a PBL Experience

1. Is there a clearly defined essential question that aligns to the stand-ards in the course or grade level you teach?

2. What enduring understandings do you expect from the project?

3. Is there a clearly identified problem or case study that needs to be solved or studied?

4. Is there an opportunity for interdisciplinary connections? (the pro-ject should include possible connections between grade levels, sub-jects, courses or buildings).

5. Is the learning experience student directed and teacher supported?

6. How does the experience explicitly address the compe-tencies in the Mayfield Graduate Profile? (Collaboration, Creativity, Communication and Critical Thinking). 

7. Is there an opportunity for students to conduct research, review evidence and prepare a written product?

8. Is there an opportunity for students to use our existing technology to interact in a blended environment?

9. Is there an opportunity for students to present their work to an authentic audience?

10. Is there an opportunity to forge partnerships with busi-nesses or local group to support the work with their expertise? (district will help make these connections)
