Powerful Instructional Practices Project-Based Learning
Teachers who adopt SREB’s Powerful Project-Based Learning Instructional Practices connect classroom lessons to real-life practices that students can use in the workplace. Whatever content area they teach or curriculum they follow, SREB’s approach to PBL helps teachers design units around a driving question that challenges students to solve a complex problem, think critically and master content, concepts and skills over an extended time period. Students engage in a cycle of inquiry and productive struggle that includes questioning, research and further questioning.
