“Discover the Joys and Benefits of Project-Based Learning”
Essentially, project-based learning is about encouraging kids to identify and explore areas of strong interest. Following the child’s lead, the parent provides space and resources to help the child dig deep into this subject area and to develop long-term learning goals and objectives.
Project-based learning helps kids engage with and solve real-world problems using a variety of tools while dismissing heavy reliance on teacher-led instruction and memorization of facts. Families who have tried this method of learning often find that homeschooling and project-based learning go hand in hand.
Over time, project-based learning helps children develop deep knowledge, problem solving skills and the ability to pursue independent, self-motivated learning.
Project-based learning curriculum doesn’t come in a box but if this method appeals to you, there are plenty of resources to help you get started and the new search feature on our website makes finding these resources even easier! I recommend picking up a copy of Pickert’s work and checking out her informative website. Enjoy!
