What is project-based learning and how does it tie into Inspire 2025 and the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate?
PBL (Project Based Learning) is an instructional approach designed to give students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through engaging projects set around challenges and problems they may face in the real world.
At GMES, grade-level teams utilize their knowledge of PBL to create engaging and authentic learning experiences for students. Each experience is built around a challenging problem or question that is meaningful to each student. Students learn key knowledge and essential success skills throughout the project in order to present an official public product to an authentic audience.
