Applied Project-Based Learning
In a project-based instruction model, students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. While allowing for some degree of student "voice and choice," rigorous projects are carefully planned, managed, and assessed to help students learn key academic content, practice 21st Century Skills (such as collaboration, communication & critical thinking), and create high-quality, authentic products & presentations. All of this is being facilitated by a CTE certified instructor with an eye on core academic and business/industry standards. Students learn in the context of; what am I learning?, why am I learning this?, and how will I apply what I’ve learned?
