A public middle and high school in Baltimore this year adopted a schoolwide project-based learning approach aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The school's adoption of PBL included the creation of a map that offers a diagram of standards under the common core, writes Eric Isselhardt, chief academic officer at the Green Street Academy. A project route then was created, which aligns with the standards map, and educators then focused on what was needed for students to be successful and whether the project met the standards, Isselhardt writes in this blog post.
