PBL for novice

NB: The following project ideas are not necessarily complete per the PBL model espoused by Edutopia and BIE. They are meant to be beginning ideas for now, awaiting full fledged development according to the model.

Here is my PBL-WL project overview template:

Les Pirates!

For French 1 - Stage 1 fluency
Students describe themselves as if they were a pirate. Capitaine Barbebleu d'Aulat has written a letter inviting pirates to apply to be a member of the crew of his ship La Grande Sophie. Acceptable pirates will be chosen to be a member of the crew, and the others? To the plank! Rubrics included.
