PBL Secret Sauce #3: Aligning the Standards to Your PBL Unit

By on October 24, 2017


Here’s my new screencast showing two ways I ensure that any unit I design or adapt is aligned to our required standards. In a nutshell:

  1. Plan around a particular standard and design with that standard(s) in mind from the get-go.
  2. Design the unit that engages you, the teacher, and your students.  Then, look at the standards, check off those the unit hits, and then go back and fill in the gaps.

Remember, if you’re a history, science, or math teacher, you should be doing this exercise with not only your content standards, but with the literacy, listening, speaking, and writing standards as well! You’ll be shocked at how many cross-curricular standards you are hitting!
