West Oakland Middle School, Oakland

This team of middle school teachers plans to implement Project Based Learning (PBL) at our school. The team will attend trainings with the Buck Institutes and PBL Works to better understand how to design and implement a PBL curriculum. By expanding their knowledge of pedagogy and working across disciplines, these teachers will be able to provide more agency to their students, which in turn will increase their own motivation in the teaching profession. The team will present at all school professional learning sessions and work directly with teachers in the school community to implement PBL.
