Project Based Learning is NOT a Posterboard
“Project-Based Learning often gets a bad rap,” says Ruth Catchen in a recent article on her website. “Those who do not advocate it claim it is arts and crafts or lightweight on content.”
Ruth takes an interesting look at What Project Based Learning is and what it is not.
Project-based learning provides an excellent opportunity for how to learn the what. Teachers and administrators must see beyond the facts and give students the opportunity to get excited about learning. Project based learning affords the opportunity for students to use their strengths and interests to gain knowledge and proficiency.
