Project-Based Learning

A project is an in-depth investigation of a real-world topic worthy of student time, attention, and energy. Projects in the classroom challenge students to apply skills, knowledge, and strategies from various content areas as they conduct authentic research, analyze data, think deeply about problems and draw conclusions. As students participate in project work they not only learn new concepts and content, but they also practice competencies they will apply to independent learning beyond the classroom. Project-based learning provides the opportunity for students to practice formulating meaningful questions, conduct research individually and in groups, evaluate and synthesize results, communicate those results to others, and reflect on the strengths of their work and ways to improve it in the future.
