What: Project-based learning (PBL) is an alternative to the traditional teaching method of lecture and listen. “If traditional education is classical, PBL is jazz. In a PBL classroom, teachers present problems that students must solve together in groups” (source). Project-based learning empowers students by giving them voice and choice over their learning. Implementing project-based learning drastically changes the culture of the classroom by engaging students through active learning experiences. 

How to: If PBL is so great  “then why do we still have so many schools falling into the test prep trap? Why do so many teachers feel like they cannot make the jump into PBL? Why haven’t we seen a nationwide movement towards PBL as a best and effective practice for all students?” (source). The answer is not ‘what’ but ‘how’. Even though, as educators, we know what we should do (implement active learning experiences like PBL), we are rarely truly taught how. Teachers may not feel comfortable knowing how to implement PBL in their classrooms. A.J.
