The Buck Institute for Education
The Buck Institute is devoted to showing teachers how to use Project Based Learning in all grade levels and subject areas. The Buck Institute creates, gathers, and shares high-quality PBL instructional practices, resources, and products for teachers, schools, and districts. The resource section provides excellent rubrics to aid in the assessment of student learning as well as teacher implementation of project-based-learning. Project Lead the Way
All Project Lead the Way Professional Development opportunities are coordinated through the the Project Lead the Way website. In addition to courses that are required to become a credentialed Project Lead the Way classroom teacher, Project Lead the Way also offers elective grade level resource training. Informal professional development is provided through a selection of blogs written by practicing teachers that showcase how PLTW has influenced their community, school, and individual students. A Closer Look at Engineering Professions
This website provides an overview of multiple engineering fields and provides links within each field for further exploration and discovery. This is an excellent choice for students tasked with conducting research into various fields of engineering. SAE Foundation
SAE offers a K-12 STEM program called "A World In Motion." SAE connects project-based learning with real-world engineering design and manufacturing and involves industry professionals in the classroom. This is an excellent choice for teachers looking to continue Project Based Learning beyond the PLTW Modules. American Society of Engineering Education
This site is sponsored by the American Society for Engineering Education. The site includes lesson plans and activities, links to competitions, and produces a newsletter to help teachers stay current with news in the world of engineering. Discover Engineering
Discover engineering is a great website for student exploration and inspiration. Students learn about complex problems solved through engineering and about the people who make it happen. Project Lead the Way Standards Alignment:
PLTW provides an alignment with common core standards in language arts and mathematics as well as an alignment with NGSS.
