"Educators nationwide believe in the general purpose of project-based learning. +1 Pedagogy puts these beliefs into action. This is a transformative framework that is imperative for 21st century teachers and learners."

Nicole Jacobson, Ed.D., Assistant Principal
Westminster School District, Garden Grove, CA

"What a rich resource and blueprint to guide and support reluctant educators! It takes the daunting task of getting started with project-based learning and makes it manageable. Dr. Warren weaves authentic rigorous tasks with personalized learning and high quality differentiation. This work will bring many stuck learning environments into the 21st century."

"Through decades of research, we now have the benefit of knowing how to design learning opportunities that engage the brain and result in mastery of content. Putting theory into practice has long been problematic and time is often the biggest barrier to full implementation. We know that project-based learning (PBL) provides a powerful learning environment for students of all ages. However, the everyday life of an educator often slows down the process as we deal with the daily realities of the classroom. This prevents us from harnessing the full power of PBL.

 

In her book, Dr. Warren provides an integrated framework that crosses grades and disciplines to assist us with the daunting task of organizing the learning for students. Her framework, along with sample lesson designs, technology integration, and rubrics, provides a solid foundation for producing PBL experiences for all students. Dr. Warren has focused on standards, assessments, and instructional practices in a manner that bring all of the essential components of PBL together, thus enhancing the probability that educators will engage students in meaningful learning without the frustration that might otherwise inhibit the decision to implement PBL. Through the careful use of these tools, Dr. Warren’s framework will impact the learning of students and allow for creativity to blossom and ownership to be assumed by supporting both the educator and the learner."

"This book serves as an innovative, interdisciplinary teaching and learning guide. Schools and districts will rethink project-based learning by learning how to seamlessly weave essential 21st century inquiry, application, collaboration and research skills into their curriculum design and prepare students to meet the rigors of a globally competitive society!"

Donna Stewart Lewis, Ed.D., J.D., Founder and CEO
ETHOS Academies, Woodland Hills, CA

"We are at a pivotal time in the history of education, where questions about inequity, accessibility, and bridging the achievement gap undergird the conversations of the political pundits. The dire pronouncements focus on the extent to which current educational practices are not preparing our students to be analytical and critical thinkers. To this end, Project-Based Learning Across the Disciplines: Plan, Manage, and Assess Through +1 Pedagogy has made a tangible contribution to the field of project-based learning.

 

Dr. Warren has an acute understanding of what it takes to guide our students into becoming autonomous learners with the skill set to work collaboratively in a team setting, skills that are integral in a global economy. For the educator, the lessons, activities and resources remove the guesswork and allow for creativity and individualization. This book is filled with a plethora of topic ideas and transcends mere interdisciplinary conversations while also providing a road-map for students to become difference makers. It takes a critical look at what positive contributions students can make, not only to their immediate neighborhoods, but also to their society and country."
