I am a current PBL Coach and Instructional Coach on our campus and I have thoroughly enjoyed the book so far. It is an easy read, yet very informative. I plan on using this to help our teachers further their PBL PD after attending 101. I also like how it has some sample projects in the back for us to look at, use, and tweak for our own needs.

As a special education teacher, the concept of project based learning is very interesting. I am going to use this publication for further research in the applicability for my special needs class.
