2nd Grade PBL
THE MIGHTY CITIZENS OF RBE
2nd Grade Teachers: Belinda Carrillo, Graciela Gonzalez, San Juanita Sobrevilla, Brady Kuenstler, & Mia Pulido
Second grade teachers at Ramirez Burks Elementary, Belinda Carrillo, Graciela Gonzalez, San Juanita Sobrevilla, Brady Kuenstler, and Mia Pulido, have also been chosen as Tech/PBL teachers for the month of October.
Their PBL was titled: THE MIGHTY CITIZENS OF RBE. The Driving Question was: “How can we as students show good citizenship through examples of truthfulness, respect, justice, equality, and responsibility in everyday life?”
The PBL focused on citizenship and good character traits. Students focused on the need and importance of following rules within the community and in the classroom. Students had to create a new classroom rule to add to the already existing list of classroom rules. Students broke into groups to create a new classroom rule. They then had to create a poste board or power point explaining/highlighting their new rule and how that rule would benefit their class. Each group member had a specific role/duty assigned to help complete the group task. Upon completion of the PBL the class voted and a new classroom rule was chosen. Students were also given the opportunity to present their PBL to a community member from the local sheriffs office and/or administration office.
Students participated in a personal reflection piece about the PBL and answered their own personal thoughts about the PBL and how they felt it went—what part of the PBL they didn’t like—what they personally learned from participating in the PBL.
