PBL (Project Based Learning)
Project-based learning incorporates education through experiences. Students are faced with a problem or a guiding question that must be answered through the investigatory process and with teacher guidance. When walking into a PBL environment, one would see teams of students collaborating, creating, and critically thinking while mastering the required lesson content. Throughout PBL activities students are engaged in academic dialogue that generates communication and collaboration skills in all grade-levels. The learning conducted in a PBL classroom is much deeper and richer because it is connected to everyday problems that students can easily relate to. Integrating many content areas into one project is a unique approach and one of the most successful strategies for making learning fun and effective.
