Project Based Learning


Northmont City Schools is committed to providing all students with Project Based Learning (PBL) experiences. We received a Straight A Grant and a Martha Holden Jennings Grant for the 2016-2017 school year totaling more than $400,000 to help implement and sustain Project Based Learning across the district. In January of 2017, all certified staff members received PBL training provided by the Buck Institute for Education. During this three-day training, we learned about the elements of "Gold Standard PBL":

  • Key Knowledge, Understanding, & Success Skills
  • Challenging Problem or Question
  • Sustained Inquiry
  • Authenticity
  • Student Voice & Choice
  • Reflection
  • Critique & Revision
  • Public Product
