Building A Social Studies Program and Project Based Learning
“Students work on a project over an extended period of time- from a week up to a semester- that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience.” ~PBLWorks
For teaching history and social studies, Project Based Learning creates the opportunity for students to demonstrate how they will utilize their skills to better their communities and understanding of society. Through Project Based Learning, students become better citizens.
