Inspire Students With Project-Based Learning

Turn up the volume in your classroom with Project-Based Learning (PBL). You are already doing so many great things, but what if you could make some adjustments and engage students in authentic real-world problem-solving? What if learning in your classroom could be student-centered? Through PBL, students learn about and use 21st century skills—such as critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and creativity—to solve an authentic problem. In PBL, students deeply engage in writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading, and are also able to apply what they have learned to their future careers and lives in a way that traditional learning does not allow.

This collection of articles will inspire, support, and walk you through how to set the stage and get started with PBL. You will learn how to create authentic guiding questions, increase student engagement, create sustained inquiry, increase student voice and choice, and learn how to support students with the critique and revision process in order to create a public product. You might engage in all or just a few of these topics, but no matter whether you give students the opportunity to experience just one or all of them, students will authentically engage in and learn those much needed 21st century skills.
