    PBL

    This year, Scholars will be learning Science and Social Studies using the PBL (Project Based Learning) method. PBL is an authentic, real-world type of learning where students receive a problem they have to solve. PBLs have a lot of community involvement. Below are a few links from The Buck Institute (bie.org), who specialize in PBLs. Please take a moment to look at them and familiarize yourself with this new method of learning.
