Project-based learning (PBL) is a method where students apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems. Students are encouraged to use information from multiple content areas, math, reading, writing, science, and social studies, to find answers. They are assessed on what they produce. It allows students to shine by using their own intellectual learning styles and creativity.
It begins with students being given a challenging question or problem. Next, students go through a process of collecting data, analyzing findings, collaborating with peers or community, creating a product that acknowledges a solution or outcome and reflecting over what they have learned.
PBL is a hands-on learning experience that allows our students to grow and gain excitement for what they are learning.
