Project-based learning in the classroom

laptopstudents-150x150

With employers looking for graduates who can communicate effectively, think critically, and solve problems in collaboration with other team members, more and more schools are looking to project-based learning as a way to better prepare students for these demands. Besides helping students develop the same 21st-century skills that employers covet, project-based learning also helps students retain the information they learn, proponents of the approach say—and it engages students’ interest and motivates them to learn. What’s more, project-based learning encourages a deeper level of thinking by involving students in answering questions for themselves, making connections, and using analytical skills.

With the generous support of The Alan Sitomer BookJam published by Recorded Books K-12, we’ve assembled this collection of stories from our archives to help you understand how your colleagues in other schools are implementing project-based learning effectively in their classrooms.
