Or maybe you do know where to start, but just need a little help?
I absolutely understand! As someone who was given the luxury of two whole days of training before I was tossed in to start my multi-age PBL school, I totally understand the realities and pressures of the everyday classroom teacher.
If you love the idea of PBL but are nervous about digging in,
this free 4-day challenge is for you!
All it takes is 1 hour each day!
7pm Eastern, 6pm Central each day!
Change your classroom practice forever!
In this 4-Day PBL Challenge, you'll learn how to launch students into your PBL unit so that each child is hooked, knows what they're doing, and is ready to learn! And this is just Day 1 (September 5)!
On Day 2 (September 6), we'll learn about how some of our favorite grouping strategies is KILLING our classroom culture. We're inadvertently creating bullies, bossy-pants kids, and lazy logs. AND we'll learn a few no-fail strategies that helps to take the pain out of group work!
Day 3 (September 7) brings us fool-proof ways to find amazing PBL topics and resources that will lay out a buffet of learning choices for your class...without breaking your brain!
We wrap up our 4-Day PBL Challenge on Day 4 (September 8) with ways to assess learning all along the PBL route. We can't get to the end just to find out we accidentally took a wrong path. We CAN we keep the various PBL trails pointing to where all kids get to their final destination!
How it works: Live 1-hour webinars scheduled each day for highly interactive learning!
Each day of the challenge, you'll log in to a live 1-hour webinar. You'll get the chance to learn about the day's topic and ask questions as we go. I'll also be sharing a variety of resources that will be immediately useful to you and your students.
By the end of these 4 days, you'll be ready to start your own PBL, armed with great strategies, proven ideas, and more go-to fingertip resources than you can imagine!
"I always wanted to make change in the world and I knew my best shot would be to do that in the world of education. I'm in my sixth year of teaching and have known Ginger for the past two years. I had no idea what kind of change was possible until I started attending her workshops. I already had a passion for teaching but she helped me to find a foothold on an amazing path in my career. My kids are hands on learners and are excited to come to school. Because of Ginger I have an incredible passion for a new kind of teaching and learning and my students share that passion everyday in my classroom."

I’m an education consultant and keynote speaker with ESSDACK, a non-profit education service center based in Hutchinson Kansas. I specialize in Project/Problem Based Learning, maker education, technology integration, and gifted & high ability learners.
I’m passionate about helping educators rethink what teachig and learning can be in today’s world.
There's nothing better than watching the face of a teacher, or a group of educators, or an entire school, as they watch their kids get excited about learning and doing things they never thought was possible. I know exactly what that feels like from the perspective of the learner, the teacher, and the school leader. Because in that moment, everything is possible. It’s the feeling of endless possibilities for all involved -- and they will want to do it again.
"If you are looking to redesign your schools and create a more learner-centric environment, I can think of no one better to help guide that effort than Ginger Lewman."

"I think that one of the things that most people do not realize about Ginger is that she has a boatload of knowledge up her sleeve. Over the years she has found method after method of getting her main message across. 'Give students authentic experiences that are relevant to their world and entice them to learn.' Her skill sets are boundless."
