Funding Agency
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 has been awarded to 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.
