Problem-Based Learning in Middle and High School Classrooms is a guide to implementing problem-based learning as a teaching method in middle schools and secondary schools. Includes sample lessons specific to grade levels and disciplines and follows the same easy-to-use style of the original volume for K-8 classrooms. This teacher-friendly, jargon-free guide to Problem-Based Learning (PBL) offers teachers an exciting student-centred 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.

Industry Reviews

Fills a gap in existing PBL literature. It gives helpful tips to PBL novices and timely reminders for PBL practitioners with an ever-present awareness of the specific needs of secondary teachers. It will be on my list of recommended reading for IMSA's PBL workshop participants! -- Debra Gerdes, Problem-Based Learning Leader
A complete delight. . . Ann Lambros writes in a manner that is very easy for any teacher to follow and feel comfortable with even without any prior understanding of PBL. . . She makes PBL seem uncomplicated, easy, and enjoyable. Her understanding of the capabilities and interests of the students at various grades is impressive. -- Howard S. Barrows, Professor Emeritus
