Beekeeping, gardening, and providing food for the community; what do all of these activities have in common? They’re all examples of Project Based Learning (PBL), an instructional best practice for many school districts including West Allis-West Milwaukee.
In this episode, Director of Leadership and Learning, Dr. Diedre Roemer discusses how her district has found success using Project Based Learning. The method follows her philosophy on education: students should be curious, feel empowered, and be prepared for life after school. Two high school students also join in the conversation and give PBL a ringing endorsement of 10 out of 10!
