Project Based Learning
A Middle School students tackle tough questions through Project Based Learning (PBL). Each year an essential question is asked and Middle School students conduct extensive research to develop real-world solutions. Students work together in their teams to solve the problem culminating in presentations to panels of experts, sharing with the EA community. PBL actively engages students, empowering them to be self-directed, independent learners. While developing skills requiring critical thinking, collaboration, problem-solving and self-efficacy, students are preparing themselves not only for Upper School and college, but ultimately for careers and life.
