Science Education Through Multiple Literacies: Project-Based Learning in Elementary School

Publication Date: November, 2021
Publisher: Harvard Education Press

How can teachers transform their science teaching to support young children to enjoy science, see the wonders of the natural world, and learn challenging science ideas that form the foundation for making sense of scientific phenomena? Science Education Through Multiple Literacies: Project-Based Learning in Elementary School presents case studies of teachers coming to learn how to enact Multiple Literacies in Project-Based learning (ML-PBL) to engage elementary students in making sense of phenomena and solving meaningful problems. Paralleling what scientists do, ML-PBL represents the essence of doing science by engaging children and their teachers in investigating real-world questions, constructing models to make sense of phenomena, and using evidence to support claims.

Compose Our World: Project-Based Learning for Secondary English Language Arts

Publication Date: January 8, 2021
Publisher: Teachers College Press

This book highlights project-based learning (PBL) as a powerful way to harness students’ interests and engage them in academically rigorous learning. The authors provide specific, research-informed curricular approaches and instructional guidance for classroom teachers, as well as an overview of the dimensions of PBL that are often overlooked in the broad expectations of inquiry-based teaching. Instead of “quick fix” lessons, Compose Our World explores how core dimensions of equitable teaching—such as social and emotional support, universal design for learning, and cultivating classroom community—function as the bedrock for student success in PBL contexts and beyond.
