Reflection: Complex Tasks What Are We Coming Home To? (Part 3) - Section 1: Warm-up


The scope of this project for students can be overwhelming so it is important to break it into manageable steps for the students and to constantly monitor the groups to ensure they are getting the support they need to keep moving forward.  This is our final unit of our year so students have been developing the skills needed to be able to handle the complexity of this task.  If this is your first attempt at PBL, you will likely need to adjust your pace and provide more guidance during each lesson (don't let that scare you away, though, it is an opportunity to make this unit your own!)
