Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method that creates deep connected learning experiences to build knowledge and skills. Our students investigate and respond to authentic and complex challenges by engaging in a variety of projects to inquire about local and global topics. Projects connect directly to each grade’s curriculum, allowing students an opportunity to grasp skills and knowledge in a new, hands-on way.
“Why PBL? Because Project Based Learning engages students in learning that is deep and long-lasting, and inspires for them a love of learning and personal connection to their academic experience.” – PBL Works
Student learning goals for projects include multidisciplinary, standards-based content and communication, collaboration, project management, and organizational skills. Each of our schools uses the resources nearest to them to build these authentic learning experiences.
