Project -Based Learning in Jewish Education 101

Project -Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered learning experience through which students master knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge over an extended period of time. Authenticity is the critical component to PBL -- the ‘project’ must be clearly relatable to the student. PBL focuses on exploring all aspects of the topic and emphasizes outcomes that impact students’ worlds in an enduring way. Participants will learn the seven core components of PBL, apply them to a lesson plan, and develop lesson sets on a topic of their own choosing. Feedback will be offered by other participants and the instructor. This process will yield a usable plan and equip participants to continue developing materials grounded in the PBL approach.
