Celebrate National Park Centennial With a Project

“Does a project always have to be about a problem? Can’t it be about something worth celebrating?” When a teacher asked me that question this summer during a project-based learning (PBL) workshop, she got me thinking. When I brainstorm with teachers about project ideas, I tend to think first of topics that give students a chance to solve an interesting challenge or advocate for a solution to a problem that concerns them. I encourage teachers to look for projects that will give students opportunities to put their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills to work. Often, that means wrestling with problems.

But PBL can also open opportunities to shine a light on people or places worth celebrating.
