Project-Based Learning Anywhere

release date: Jan 06, 2021
Project-Based Learning Anywhere
At the heart of veteran educator Lori Elliott''s passion for project-based learning is the belief that the more students can actually "live" the content or concept, the more deeply they''ll learn the ideas and, in turn, love learning. PBL fosters the real-world skills our students need to thrive in the world outside the classroom. And the best part about PBL? It can happen anywhere. As virtual and distance learning step into the spotlight, teachers need more innovative ways to keep students engaged. Tapping into her twenty-five years of experience, Elliott explores PBL''s many benefits and empowers educators who might feel daunted by the prospect of introducing it into their teaching. This accessible book offers practical strategies to implement PBL, including step-by-step instructions for envisioning, overseeing, and evaluating PBL instructional units. Whether you''re a new teacher who''s curious to learn more about project-based learning or a longtime educator looking to make your units even more amazing, this book is your go-to toolkit. "Lori provides practical steps, strategies, and valuable tips to make [PBL] not only doable but fun for both you and your students.

Running Through the Raindrops

release date: May 06, 2013
Running Through the Raindrops
Lori Elliott is the wife of a pastor, holds a full-time job and is a mother of four, including a special needs child. Although motherhood can be overwhelming, stressful and chaotic, there are those magical moments when the joy and humor you find make all the craziness seem worthwhile. She occasionally gets five minutes of quiet, and uses her blog as therapy. So far she has come up with the following rules for motherhood: 1) Running away doesn''t solve anything--you''ll miss the chaos and go back before you thought you would. 2) Don''t sweat the small stuff, like housework. The dishes can wait. 3) When you get overwhelmed, try to have a sense of humor, take a breath and let it go. 4) Life doesn''t go the way you planned, so trust in God to take you where you need to be. If we trust in God, even when we can''t see where he is leading us, we receive unexpected blessings that we wouldn''t have dreamed to ask for!
