Quick  & Easy Project Based Learning K-12
Rating

Project-based learning does not always have to be a 6-8 week unit. Often students and teachers go lost somewhere in the middle. This website outlines how teachers can used design thinking to get students researching, collaborating, evaluating information, creating, revising, and launching in a short period of time. Through the process they engaging in a Project-Based Learning "sprint".

“The LAUNCH Cycle” is a K-12 framework for design thinking in the classroom and can be done in any subject and in any grade level (with modifications of course).

The process is as follows:
STEP #1: PRESENT THE CONTENT THAT STUDENTS ARE GOING TO LEARN (THEN GIVE A CHOICE ON WHICH AREA THEY LEARN MORE ABOUT)
STEP #2: HAVE STUDENTS RESEARCH THE CONTENT (WHAT DOES THE WORLD NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT AND WHAT CAN THEY DO ABOUT IT)
STEP #3: STUDENTS CREATE SOMETHING THAT MATTERS (a PSA) AND SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD!

The goal here is for students to be documenting, sharing, creating, and teaching while they are learning. Be sure to watch the video of the process in action!
