Project Based Learning
in World & US History

PBL in US History

I firmly believe students should be deeply involved in history and engaging with the content to make it meaningful and relevant for them. The best strategy I have found for this is to use PBL throughout the school year. Our American History curriculum includes an in-depth packet for bringing PBL into your classroom. This innovative strategy gives students choice in their learning while also delving deeper into a topic of US History that matters to them.

This packet gives you everything you need to use project based learning for any unit in American History and includes 99 suggested topics for projects plus 25 ideas for real world projects. Your students will have the power of choice to investigate an authentic question in US History.

Also included are:

★ Detailed teacher instructions on how to implement the projects, including ideas for differentiation
★ Student introduction pages that break down the project into 6 steps
★ A project planning worksheet to help students through the project
★ Rubrics for the project and for peer evaluation
★ A self-reflection worksheet for after the project

When you join Students of History, you’ll immediately have everything you need to make learning come alive for students through Project Based Learning. Once you begin, you’ll see that these are class-changing projects that you and the students will love! You can get a more in-depth preview as well as read through feedback from teachers here!
