Authentic Project-Based Learning in Grades 48 provides a clear guide to design, develop, and implement real-world challenges for any middle school subject. The author lays out five clear, standards-based stages of assessment to help you and your learners process the what, how, and why of authentic project-based experiences.

You’ll learn how to create projects that:

  • Align with your content standards
  • Integrate technology effectively
  • Support reading and writing development
  • Utilize formative assessment
  • Allow for multiple complex pathways to emerge
  • Facilitate the development of essential skills beyond school

Each chapter includes a variety of practical examples to assist with scaffolding and implementation. The templates and tools in the appendix are also provided on our website as free eResources for ease of use.
