How to Use Project Based Learning in Your Classroom

Sitting quietly and reading a textbook can make even the most devoted student’s mind wander. Instead, use these project based learning ideas to design lessons that excite and involve even the most inattentive learners.

Listening to lectures, taking notes, and writing papers do not naturally engage most students — especially those with ADHD.

At the core of each PBL lesson is a driving question that is critical to the curriculum and leads to constructive investigation.

This quick-reference guide contains five project based learning ideas and structures to start your classroom on the path to experiential learning.
