PBL Ready! For Leaders 

Dr. Kelly Henderson

If we want students to experience ongoing, daily integration of academy themes and academic subjects and to participate in high-quality project-based learning, there needs to be a systematic plan for this to occur. Implementing project-based learning takes time but it also takes leadership, guidance, and work. These sessions are for building and district leaders and will address the importance of knowing and understanding PBL, how to encourage implementation, and supporting teachers efforts’ to implement PBL in their own classrooms as well as part of an academy team.
