Project Based Learning is a great approach that aligns well with three dimensional instruction. The planning process for a PBL unit is very similar to an NGSS storyline. Instead of working to “explain a phenomenon,” however, students are working to “solve a problem.” This is a great opportunity to tie in engineering practices.
A great resource for PBL planning and implementation tools is the Buck Institute for Education – PBL Works website. I mention this in the workshop, but I wanted to provide you the link here as well.
