The Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) focuses on measuring the process of change experienced by teachers involved in the implementation of new curriculum materials and/or instructional practices, and how interventions by change facilitators affect that process (Anderson, 1997). The purpose of this mixed-methods study was twofold: 1) identify peak concerns of teachers currently implementing Project/Problem Based Learning (PBL), and 2) determine if a two-week professional development program on PBL resolved teachers' concerns. Results indicated that regardless of the years teachers were associated with the innovation, concerns requiring more information about PBL and how it would affect them personally were present. In addition, concerns of teachers were resolved after completing the two-week professional development designed to administer to those concerns.
