Project-Based Learning

Project-Based Learning at Bradford K-8

In Project-Based Learning, teachers make learning come alive for students.

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method at Bradford. Students gain knowledge and skills through their investigation and response to an authentic question, problem or challenge.

They will work on a project for an extended period of time to solve a real-world problem or answer a complex question. Students remain engaged with projects for a week or up to a semester. To demonstrate their knowledge and skills, they will create a public product or presentation for a real audience.

Students develop deep content knowledge and critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication skills. PBL unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers.

Project-Based Learning in Jeffco

Project-based learning (PBL) is work conducted by students over a period of time to solve real-world problems or answer complex questions. Through PBL projects, students not only gain content knowledge from core classes but also develop skills to thrive. These skills, although developed over a lifetime, enable students to make connections between school, home and the world at large.

The essence of PBL is to help students make connections between what they already know, what they learn in school and what they might do outside the classroom setting. Teachers who use this instructional approach act as a guide or facilitator while students think critically about what they know, need to know and how to acquire knowledge on the topic to fulfill the task.
