About this event

Join us for a workshop inspired by giraffes and Brookfield Zoo’s HABITAT AFRICA to learn practical, engaging strategies to implement problem-based learning in your classroom. Problem-based learning is an engaging, student-centered approach to learning that challenges students to explore, think critically, and problem-solve as they work together to find solutions to “real-life” issues. The workshop will share tools and resources to support questioning, organization, student planning, problem-solving, and reflection. Brainstorm new ideas for problem-based learning related to giraffes, conservation and nature to engage and inspire your students. This class is targeted to teachers in grades 3-8. All K-12 educators are welcome, as content can be adapted to all grade levels. 3 professional development hours are available for participants who provide their IEIN number and meet attendance requirements. Professional development credit will be documented and administered on the ISBE PD+ site.
