Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Project

The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Project provides an authentic purpose for math and English Language Arts while integrating Social Studies, Science, and other content areas. It offers educators a chance to shift the work of learning from the educator to the students, where it belongs. To prepare a generation of students who can solve real-world problems, they must be given real-world problems to solve. Problem-based learning is the way to accomplish this task.The following links are Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Project resources:
