8 Essentials for Project-Based Learning

What is it? Here’s an article by BIE, updated from its original appearance in the September 2010 issue of Educational Leadership magazine from ASCD. Good for general audiences as well as educators, it explains the essential elements that make rigorous PBL different from “doing projects.”

Why do we like it? This article was written because some teachers say they "do projects" already (so why learn more about PBL) and some educators and members of the general public may have negative stereotypes of PBL as merely a "fun" or "hands-on" activity.

How can you use it? Share this article with anyone, from teachers to parents to administrators, to explain PBL and provide a common framework for projects. The 8 Essential Elements are the basis of BIE's Project Design Rubric and PBL 101 Workshop.

Try Engineering

Tryengineering.org has incredibly creative online lesson and project plans and interactive games for students. It is also an excellent resource for students, their parents, their teachers and their school counselors. This is a portal about engineering and engineering careers, as well as curriculum for the classroom. We hope it will help young people understand better what engineering means, what careers in this field look like, how to get there so that an engineering career can be made part of their future.
