We aim to provide school leaders with ideas, inspiration, and research-supported thinking to move forward with effective, high-quality project-based learning.
The learning goals and the process for achieving them are central to the design. The potential of PBL to support students’ mastery of core content and cross-sector competencies is conditioned on the intentionality with which PBL is planned and executed. This process begins with building a vision of what PBL is and why it is important to a particular school or group, articulating a community-wide vision of a career-ready graduate and how PBL can support this, and defining related learning goals—from standards and competencies to essential or driving questions to problem design and aligned assessment criteria and rubrics.
