This teacher-friendly, jargon-free guide to Problem-Based Learning (PBL) offers teachers an exciting student-centered teaching method that engages learners at all levels in middle school and high school. PBL lessons encourage students to work together in groups to arrive at sound solutions, as well as to develop important self-directed learning skills that can be transferred to non-classroom situations. Author and PBL expert Ann Lambros further familiarizes educators with the PBL philosophy by outlining the many benefits obtained from PBL, including reading comprehension, social skill development, content retention, and student motivation.

This easy-to-use guide for teachers implementing PBL in the classroom includes:

Getting started with PBL in middle and high school classrooms
Developing problems for classroom use
Ready-to-use sample problems for different grade levels
Self and peer assessments for PBL
Problem-Based Learning in Middle and High School Classrooms offers a powerful technique for all levels of learning to equip students with the tools necessary to conquer the challenges they face today and in the future.
