PBL prepares students for academic, personal, and career success, and readies young people to rise to the challenges of their lives and the world they will inherit.

Students work on a project over an extended period of time – from a week up to a semester – that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience.

As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic, meaningful project. PBL unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.

This is a two day course:  the second session will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 8:30-3:00 at ASC.  There is also an optional work time scheduled after school on Thursday, February 12 (3:00 – 5:00) at ASC at which you can collaborate with other educators from around the district to develop a PBL project to implement in your classroom.

Teachers will be paid a stipend for the two Saturday sessions and receive 10 SCECHS.  You will also receive a stipend (for up to 2 hours) and additional SCECHs if you choose to attend the optional work time on February 12.
