Dear Parent or Guardian:
We are excited to announce that our school will engage in Project Based Learning, or PBL. A
project motivates students to gain knowledge, and they remember It longer. Projects give
students the chance to apply the skills they learn in school to personally relevant and real world
situations. Your child also learns skills in PBL such as how to think critically, solve problems,
work in teams, and make presentations. These skills will help students succeed in the future,
both in school and in today's work world. As a project begins your child will:
* Be given a topic to discuss and research.
* Develop a driving question to focus their work.
* Conduct research using various sources.
* Engage in critical and creative conversations with a team of peers.
* Prepare a final product to present to an authentic audience.
Students will be assessed individually on their content knowledge, their collaboration skills, and
their presentation skills. You will receive the rubrics we will use to guide the creation of our
products and assess students' work. You will find these helpful in understanding what we are
asking students to do, and supporting your child during the project. As parents or guardians,
you can discuss the project at home, encouraging your child to think hard and ask questions
about the topic. You will be informed of the details as projects begin and progress.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher if you have any questions about any
