Here is the Prezi – The Paint Job
See – “The Chop Shop” Handouts for the handouts to this presentation.
Sometimes the only thing needed to brighten up a room is a new coat of paint. Have you ever found yourself saying, “They just don’t get it” or “I just can’t teach this another year?” Project-based learning has been around for a century but often is overlooked or forgotten in the classroom. Making a real-life application and utilizing a driving question to “drive” the outcomes in your class projects, combined with the development of 21st-century skills along the way, may be just what your teaching needs. Students (and teachers) will fall in love with learning again. Project-based learning is the new “DIY” of teaching, and once you’ve tried it, you will never go back to the same old paint job again.
