I am a student who is new to the teaching world (although I am a tutor, I haven’t been in a classroom on the teacher side) and as a student I haven’t seen project based learning as a forefront of the classroom. There have been times I have been set up with a team to do a project, but we have learned the information about it first, then have to replicate the steps within the project. One project I remember in high school is dissecting a pig. We all learned the basics of the internal and external features of the pig before the project happened, and then during the dissection we had to find the features based off the knowledge of what the teacher lectured to us. In today’s classrooms of what I have experienced as a student I have yet to see any PBL teams and projects. I believe that PBL is something that I have been waiting to hear. I want to teacher high school math and have been thinking of ways to make the material exciting for them to learn. I believe PBL is the answer to what I have been contemplating. According to edutopia.org, PBL and math is very hard to do, but it still can be done. I found a blog on edutopia.org that explains how difficult it is, but is still able to be done (http://www.edutopia.org/blog/project-based-learning-math-standards). I believe using PBL in the classroom with help those students remember math standards easier. I am hoping those students will do their share of the project instead of relying on others to do the work for them.
