Cancelled: Project-Based Learning Schoolwide, Our Journey

Sherman STEAM Elementary has transformed from a traditional school, to a STEAM school, using PBL as the instructional model. What began as a PBL block of time in year one has grown to incorporate all subjects, classrooms, and our community in year 4. Teachers led and continue to lead our STEAM & PBL work. Learn about our journey, lessons learned, unexpected outcomes and what's next for us. Take away ideas, resources, and ways to start or grow PBL at your classroom, school or district.
