Learning by Doing with the Life Practice Model (Remarkable Chatter #19)

Ginger Lewman

Ginger Lewman, ESSDACK educational consultant, joins Steve Wyckoff and Bill Hagerman, superintendent at USD 309 Nickerson, Kansas as they discuss project/problem based learning.  Ginger worked for five years establishing a PBL charter school where she developed the curriculum used by the students in grades 5–8.  Ginger talks about what she learned from her experience and how that led to the development of the LifePractice Model.  Working with her partner, Kevin Honeycutt, they developed the LifePractice Model on the basic premise that schools should look and feel more like the real world since preparing students for life is the main mission.  Find out how easy it can be to implement PBL in your school or classroom using this amazing resource.
