Project-Based Learning (PBL)

Project-Based Learning is a unique venture project involving uncertainties which are to be managed during execution. This project is capable to cater to the challenges of preparing students to solve the real-world problems rather than an essay or exam-based traditional classroom setting.

In Project-Based Learning, teachers make studying come alive for students. Students work on a project over an extended time – from a week up to a semester – that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering complex questions. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience.

As a result, students develop in-depth content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills. Project-Based Learning unleashes contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.

Project-Based Learning typically is grounded by the following elements:

  • Role-playing
  • Real-world scenarios
  • Blended writing genres
  • Multiple reading genres
  • Authentic assessments
  • Authentic audiences
  • Real-world expertise brought into the classroom
  • Units that assess multiple skills
  • Units that require research and comprehension of multiple subjects
  • Student choice
  • Collaboration
  • Multiple methods of communication (writing, oral speaking, visual presentations, publishing, etc.)

These skills will help shape our students to become better leaders and thinkers in the future.
