Quick Tip: Enhance Your Lessons with Project-based Learning 
 
Project-based Learning (PBL) is an exciting and creative approach to engaging students. The school’s curricular content stays constant, but the method of teaching it is student-centered. Students internalize new knowledge through active collaborative exploration.  
 
Teachers present a real “problem” or challenge for students to solve through active research, strategizing and implementation. The activity is generally cross-curricular. The content challenge may involve parsha or Yom Tov curriculum, but the vehicle to present the solution may be a multimedia presentation that the students write, perform and present.
 
For example: Before Sukkos, students are taught the halachos of a kosher Sukkah. To make this a  Project-based Learning experience, divide the class into project teams.    Present each team with a different problem scenario to solve to build a kosher sukkah. Each group researches by using primary sources to learn the halachos to solve its particular challenge. 
  • They document by journaling and/or videotaping:
    • their collaborative research. 
    • their collaborative strategizing. 
    • their building their scale-model “kosher” sukkah.
  • If journaling: they write a report describing their experience and conclusion, including their journal.
  • If videotaping: they write a narrative to go along with the video, edit the video and include the narrative.
  • They present to the class.
