Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning is an approach to teaching and learning that allows students to explore real-life
problems, challenges, and questions through a process of guided inquiry. Projects are planned based on Douglas County's Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum, Colorado State Standards and 21st Century Skills. Students will have the opportunity to think critically as they question and learn about new topics of inquiry, collaborate with peers, and create projects that show their learning and understanding.
