Project Based Learning for Real Teachers will become the essential handbook for teachers wanting to implement PBL in their classrooms. Unlike other resources, it addresses the common concerns and realistic challenges teachers face when trying PBL. In addition, this resource will share practical answers and strategies teachers can use to be successful. The books are written in a personal, down to earth style so that teachers can relate to the author and buy in to this engaging way of teaching, without spending lots of money and spending hours creating things that are not necessary. The focus is on what the students are doing and learning, not how cute the product will be in the end. Teachers will discover that PBL is not an extra thing to do at the end of a unit, but rather it is HOW students learn standards and objectives.
