Editorial Reviews

Ann Richardson
"This resource serves as more than an introduction to PBL as an instructional approach; it removes the fear of trying the unknown. Filled with clear explanations and samples, real-world anecdotes and practical advice, as well as lists of resources, this book will become a user’s guide to a powerful instructional approach that will meet the needs of 21st century learners."

"Not only is the work timely and current in the field of education, it provides educators with an inclusive resource for project based learning. This concept and the presentation of the material address the needs of students and teachers in the 21st century classroom. The resources, examples, and strategies presented support easy implementation!"
Denise Rives
"Project based learning is the future of education. We can no longer prepare students for today's global world with traditional teaching methods.This bookmay well be our ticket to the future in education."
