Project-Based Learning: Inquiring Minds Engaged in Hands-On Learning

Project-based learning involves meaningful inquiry that engages students’ minds and supports the CCSS anchor standards. Using this method allows students to demonstrate independence; build strong content knowledge; respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline; comprehend as well as critique; value evidence; use technology and digital media strategically and capably; and understand other perspectives and cultures, as outlined in the CCSS. By completing an inquiry project of their own, participants will learn this innovative way to increase student learning and achievement, first by learning how to choose and plan projects, then by learning how to implement and manage projects that promote 21st century learning skills and how to assess the success of each project.
