Project Ideas

Project-based learning provides students with hands-on opportunities to learn new skills and engage in solutions to real-world challenges.

According to PBLWorks, project-based learning 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. The intentional connection to place solidifies a rigorous and authentic learning experience for students. The Seven Step Framework, with one of the accompanying featured projects, is the ideal foundation in which to build project-based learning experiences. Start transforming your classroom today.
