PBL Made Simple is written to assist teachers in understanding how to apply problem-based learning (PBL) in the classroom. Teachers are introduced to the different processes required to enable them to empower their students in PBL. This book also provides examples of lesson plans for the primary, secondary and tertiary levels so that teachers will be more equipped in adapting, modifying and designing even better PBL lessons for their students in class, as well as in the schools. This book hopes to encourage more flexibility in thinking so that teachers, and eventually students, will be able to think out-of-the box and see many possible solutions to the problems as they exercise multiple perspective-taking, collaborative work, problem-solving and knowledge of their academic areas.
This is a must-read for all pre-service and in-service teachers, as well as other teachers in schools, both locally and overseas. It can be used as a textbook for the teaching of PBL, as well as a supplementary book for teachers who wish to use this approach in their teaching
