The Design-Based Learning Project at UCLA Center X has put together a sampling of time-tested activities that showcase the Doreen Nelson Method of Design-Based Learning© for teachers to try out with their students. These activities can be repeated with a different focus.

I am convinced that the work of building a sense of social responsibility is one of the biggest priorities of most educational leaders at the moment. Design-Based Learning not only exercises the mind and thinking skills, but builds the comfort, security, and confidence that working together builds better solutions. DBL brings the elements of exploration, critical thinking, planning, and building to not just support curriculum and standards, but to build that sense of cooperation and mutual responsibility to identify and develop solutions to problems of learning, life and community in a way like nothing I have seen.”
