Research: Training teachers for Project-based learning

The purpose of the research study is to learn of the successful and unsuccessful attempts at training teachers in the implementation of project-based lesson delivery. This will show any gaps in current teacher professional development training and resources pertaining to it. Further, research related to the increased demand placed on teachers due to barriers (increasing paperwork, IEPs, teaching to test, lower salaries causing second jobs, increasing caseload and class sizes) will shed light on the fact that the current model of education in the United States is due for a shift in order to meet the needs of the modern learner in the age of multi-media information delivery.
