Project-Based Learning, or PBL, to help students learn better in a hands-on way. PBL motivates students to take some control in their own learning process, gain knowledge, and remember it longer. PBL gives students the chance to apply the skills they learn in school to personally relevant and real-world situations. Your child also learns skills in PBL such as how to think critically, communicate, solve problems, work in teams, and make presentations. These skills will help students succeed in the future, both in school and in today’s work world.
