“One of the advantages of project-based learning is the flexibility. PBL is an effective instructional strategy within individual content areas as well as across disciplines. It’s engaging for young learners and teens alike. Good projects can be short term and tightly focused, or expansive enough to require months of inquiry. The sky’s the limit — which can be a challenge for teachers designing their first projects.
Fortunately, you don’t have to start from scratch. By borrowing good project ideas from other teachers, and adapting them to fit your context, you can get off to a faster start.”
