4 reviews for Developing PBLs for Gifted Learners

  1. Heath – BEAUMONT ISD (verified owner)

    Nice and quick look on a method of using projects in learning

  2. Loretta – CORPUS CHRISTI ISD (verified owner)

    Helpful info on PBL!

  3. Brandon – Bexley City Schools (verified owner)

    I didn’t find this to be a useful introduction to the idea of PBL, as there were sparse on-screen visuals (mostly just reading off the screen and verbally suggesting an example) and several terms that were referenced without explanation (“single point rubric,” “degrees of content,” etc.). Additionally, for being included in a suite of learning tagged for gifted students, the only acknowledgement of how gifted learners’ needs might be addressed was the usual ‘just tell them to do more during the same project everyone else is doing.’
