Are you in need of a few new PBL resources? Last week I started to sift through my Pocket and sort the resources I think may be the most helpful. Let me know if you find them useful.
If you're searching for PBL project ideas check out the Buck Institutes PBLU site where you will find not only project ideas, but also the project plan and other essential documents needed for the project.

Voice & Choice
With an emphasis this quarter on Voice & Choice I've used these articles and resources with my team to guide us in writing our PBL projects.

I used Danez Smith's TEDx talk to introduce the need for Voice & Choice and also StuVoice as an additional resource.
My Favorite Find
