Project-based learning is a big keyword in public schooling these days, but it’s something that has worked well for homeschoolers for years! In fact, homeschool project-based learning is one of the greatest tools I’ve used over the years to build strong, confident learners.
What is project-based learning?
There’s a really big answer to that question, but here’s a nutshell definition…Project-based learning is a teaching method that allows students to take the reins in their learning through interest-based investigations that result in authentic projects.
Not only is that definition pretty philosophical, it doesn’t cover the entire list of incredible benefits that make homeschool project-based learning such a power-packed option.
What makes project-based learning such a game-changer?
- Students are given choices that help them find motivation and take ownership in learning.
- Interests and passions can be explored which drives engagement in learning.
- Projects develop a broad range of skills across many academic areas.
- Students can lean in to their learning styles, while still being challenged in non-preferred learning styles.
- The work is authentic and meaningful – which means fewer questions about how the project will serve them in the real world.
But isn’t project-based learning hard?
