Project Based Learning

What is project-based learning?

  • Project-based learning (PBL) is authentic, inquiry-driven, and student-led.
  • PBL incorporates reflection, self-assessment, and peer critique/revision.
  • Projects often involve a culminating celebration of learning - sharing with the larger community and stakeholders.

Project Based Learning at Holland School

Our students started the 2017 with a school-wide engineering unit. Here the 4th, 5th and 6th graders are working with Mr. Joe and their classroom teachers, Mrs. A and Mrs. Keller, to build catapults.
