As a Project- Based Learning (PBL) school, our facilitators are working extra hard to formulate Driving Questions that are engaging, rigorous, and authentic. The questions drive the project and help to make the curriculum they are learning applicable to their world. We want to ensure that all our learners have the tools they need to be successful.
As explained by PBL Works: “PBL blends content mastery, meaningful work, and personal connection to create powerful learning experiences, in terms of both academic achievement and students’ personal growth. PBL leads to deeper understanding and greater retention of content knowledge. Students are better able to apply what they know to new situations. A great project can be transformative for students. Seeing a real-world impact gives them a sense of agency and purpose.”
PBL is quite different from traditional methods and understanding the why and how, will greatly benefit you and your child. Each facilitator will send home a project design guide. Please read it thoroughly to know all the details. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s facilitator.
