Wake/UTD PBL April Newsletter 2016
Wake Forest School of Medicine and the University of Texas at Dallas School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics have partnered to become the leading resource for schools and districts that want to systematically transform teaching by establishing standards of inquiry-based, authentic instruction. Our program supports teachers with tools to address everyday instructional concerns and provides Problem and Project-Based Learning resources to assist in designing rigorous learning environments to meet content standards.
What's New
On April 21st the Math and PBL for Student Success partnership grant hosted a Teacher Orientation night for the incoming participants of MAPSS Year Two.  Teachers were given an overview of the grant and the different components that will make up their training this summer.  They were also able to hear about the experiences of Year One participants and how this training has impacted their teaching and their students.  Many logistics were covered during the orientation, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact Penny Willard at   
Summer Institutes
The Summer Inquiry Institute taking place in Winston Salem, NC during the week of July 11 - 15 will be divided into two 2.5 day sessions.  The first session will be a PBL Refresher that focuses on highly effective PBL strategies.  Participants will work together on a case, review the standards of authentic instruction, and learn how to select the best cases to complement their curriculum.  The second session will be a Case Writing Workshop where participants learn how to author cases using the Wake/UTD PBL method.  A case will be examined and deconstructed to acquire an understanding on the elements that make it a successful teaching tool.  Participants will apply this knowledge while experiencing an existing case and writing their own.  To register, please click here
