Book Title:

What if…The Comprehensive Guide to Phenomenon-Based Learning

Book Synopsis:
How do we engage our students in their own learning and create an organic learning environment in which they look forward to entering every day? Bringing the world around us into the classroom – phenomena – and going out into the world, makes learning relevant and exciting. These are the steps to design projects around your children’s and your students’ interests so that they learn the joys of digging deeper, seeing things from different angles, and ultimately becoming comfortable in multi-cultural situations.

Book Excerpts
How can I change my learning environment from one in which my students are learning the language to one in which they acquire it? What are scaffolding activities and how do I create them for the PhBL projects my students are working on? Aren’t there any case studies of other teachers who are having the same challenges as I am having? In this first volume, you’ll be able to distinguish between PhBL projects set up for your students to learn and those designed so that your students acquire language while researching the subject of the project. You’ll find case studies, templates, clear explanations, and solid research on the most effective ways to structure your PhBL project.
