When creating lesson plans, it is key to incorporate different skills in which students will be able to use outside of the classroom as well as throughout the lesson. This website that I found discusses all of the different definitions, tips, and frameworks for incorporating 21st century skills into your projects and lessons. Take a look at this website, it is a fantastic resource!!
I found this website that explains how to teach global awareness through different arts and crafts. I remember completing different assignments in art to represent different cultures holidays and how they celebrated their seasons. Not only are teachers applying project-based learning, but also spreading awareness of different backgrounds as well.
I was able to locate another source from EDUtopia in regards to Project-Based Learning. This page provides different workshop activities for educators to help them better understand how to teach PBL and provides many different case study videos. Lastly, there are professional papers written by different educators sharing their experiences with the teaching style and what benefits there were. The amount of information provided is a little overwhelming, but if viewed piece by piece, it will surely help you in the classroom.
