What is Project-Based Learning?
A standards-focused Project-Based Learning (PBL) teaching method engages students in "learning knowledge and skills through an extended inquiry process structured around complex, authentic questions and carefully designed products and tasks" (Buck Institute for Education).
PBL is a rigorous, relevant, and engaging instructional model that benefits students in many ways. It is more effective than traditional instruction for long-term retention of concepts and skill development.
What does Project-Based Learning look like at PRIDE Academy?
PBL at PRIDE Academy takes on many different forms, depending on the grade level of the student. The video below demonstrates a PBL project in Mrs. Schipke and Mr. Kemery's 4/5 classes.
