Project Based Learning in the Arts!

Project-based learning is an educational approach rooted in inquiry. Because the arts are a conduit for us to explore questions and communicate how we view the world and ideas, PBL and the Arts are a natural fit.

Allowing students to explore arts topics through inquiry-based learning provides students with an opportunity to make their learning more authentic, to gain knowledge based in standards, and to develop 21st century learning skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, and creativity.

While PBLs can and should be differentiated to most authentically tackle the challenge or problem of your project in your content, the same basic steps should be in place. Let’s walk through the major steps of the PBL process and identify access points for the arts in each step
