This inspiring tool demonstrates how project-based learning (PBL) projects can be used in a variety of settings and provides coaching for educators who aspire to create their own projects.

Madigan’s book delivers flexible, interdisciplinary, learner-driven projects that support the National School Library Standards. Readers will find background on project-based learning (PBL), a breakdown of the essential parts of a project, and ready-made PBL projects that can be used with minimal preparation. Designed for both beginning and experienced school librarians and educators interested in facilitating PBL projects with elementary learners, this book offers

  • lessons, educator preparation steps, learner directions, worksheets, assessments, suggested materials, and resources; 
  • mini and extended versions of each project enabling use with diverse schedules, grade levels, and learner abilities; and 
  • chapters on collaborating with other educators, facilitating and adapting virtual PBL projects, and creating PBL projects.
