Annemarie Palincsar receives grant from George Lucas Education Foundation and MSU


Professor Annemarie Palincsar has received a grant for the project titled “Grade 5 ML-PBL Curriculum/Using Multiple Literacies in Project Based Learning-5th Grade Addendum.” This work is funded by Michigan State University and the George Lucas Education Foundation.

The Multiple Literacies in Project-Based Learning (PBL) project will design, develop and test rigorous interdisciplinary project-based learning curricula for the upper elementary grades. Additional funding from Michigan State University and the George Lucas Educational Fund will support the creation of lessons for fifth grade. Lessons will require sense making through the application of science ideas and practices, language literacy, mathematical thinking and technology tools. The exploration of culturally and personally relevant driving questions will support student learning. In doing so, these PBL curricula will promote access to and ownership of knowledge for diverse learners. The project, in addition to designing, developing and testing curriculum materials, will result in a model for how to develop effective interdisciplinary PBL elementary curricula.

Annemarie Sullivan Palincsar is Chair, Educational Studies, Professor of Education; Jean and Charles Walgreen Professor of Reading and Literacy; Arthur F. Thurnau Professor
