Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) promotes engaging academics. The focus of PBL is for students to do real work to solve a real problem for an real audience. Time is devoted to enticing students' interest in an issue, a need, or a problem and working toward a solution. Field work is often an important component of PBL. Field work requires students to venture away from school for research and to learn how to work toward a solution. With PBL, students' work leads to an end product that is presented to an authentic audience connected to the focus of their work. PBL takes many different forms (writing, constructing, data collecting, drawing, filming etc.) and is applied to any subject area or cross-curricular, at all grade levels.
