By Ross Cooper and Erin Murphy

Hacking Project Based Learning is a classroom essential. It's ten simple ‘hacks’ will guide you through the process of setting up a learning environment in which students will thrive from start to finish.” — Daniel H. Pink, New York Times Bestselling Author of DRIVE

The book is written with a sense of urgency and clarity. After reading this part: "We are preparing students for a globally competitive world where their abilities to think on their feet, solve problems, and innovate will be valued far more than the number of facts in their heads." I am even more motivated to get a greater handle on the purpose, and best practices of implementing a project-based learning classroom. Also, the authors provide soooo much support through schoology. This book is A MUST HAVE! Add it to the front shelf of your teacher resource library!

I am an experienced Science teacher and now teacher educator. I always did a lot of project-based work with my students because there is where they can be the most challenged, engaged, and themselves.

I have read lots of books on the subject, and find most helpful, but ultimately disappointing. But not this one. Hacking Project Based Learning does several things well at the same time. It creates a powerful context for the work that needs to be done. It provides teachers with the tools they need to do it properly and effectively. And it talks about the possible resistance from students and colleagues and how to respond.

I plan on using this great book with some of my teacher education classes.
