Finding an Authentic Goal for Your PBL Classroom. When we talk about project-based learning (PBL), we focus our curriculum on finding real-world ways for students to learn problem-solving and communication skills.

Finding an Authentic Goal for Your PBL Classroom

When doing this, authenticity is key. When you are first developing a PBL unit, you must begin the journey by establishing an authentic goal. By the end of the unit, you want students to have solved something. Along the way, they will have written, collaborated, created, pitched, discussed, and presented. It sounds overwhelming, especially if you haven't found that launching pad (authentic goal) in the first place. I think this is the main reason why the e-NABLE Community Foundation seems to have taken the PBL world by storm. e-NABLE initially began in 2013 as a simple but powerful matching service between children who might benefit from receiving prosthetic hands and designers and makers who could construct those hands inexpensively and quickly.

You simply type or past in your text then select either the types of words or the number of spaces between words that you want taken out of the text. You can also add clues, so that you can provide all the missing words and students just decide which ones go where. Once you have decided on the number of or type of words you want taken out of the text, you select either text only, for a printable classroom version or interactive to create an interactive online version of the exercise. This is a great little tool for reviewing texts and building learner autonomy, especially the online version.

You can ask your students to take texts they have studied in class and create and test themselves on various aspects text just by copying it in and clicking. Great free tool. Hope you find it useful.
