A blog that inspires me everyday holds another look into project-based learning, Teachable Moments. One daughter is pursuing a passion of baking and community service while the other daughter is an intern at an University in the Meteorology Department.
In our home project-based learning is taking place at a slow pace. Grace and her father are currently working toward participating in an art festival in May. This week Grace received pens, blank bookmarks, and blank note cards to start creating some items to sell. This will be an ongoing project with other art products to be created as well. We also purchased for her the new Sketchpad Pro software to help in these endeavors.
If you are interested in finding out more about project-based learning (because I am still in the first steps of learning about it) you might be interested in the book below or visiting one of the blogs I mentioned above.
