PROJECT BASED LEARNING all your content: all their intersts

Project based learning creates a classroom climate where students lead their own learning. By using student interests and real life situations, learners and teachers team together to research, create, and present information using skills and information from across content areas.

Projects combine content areas. Math and social studies. Engineering and history. Literacy and music. Art, drama, and writing.

Student thought and discussion drive instruction while research, writing, math, and other content objectives are embedded.

Group social skills and creative thinking are emphasized.

Students revise and monitor their own thinking and work product using peer and teacher feedback and rubrics.

Students select products that meet their learning goal. Learning goals set at the start of a project study along with a driving question focus all work in the project.
