Project-based learning (PBL) is a student-centred approach to learning that occurs over an extended time period, during which students plan, investigate, prototype and produce a product, presentation or performance that answers a real-world question or responds to an authentic challenge. Teachers generally serve as facilitators, providing strategic instruction, scaffolding and guidance. At Living Faith, our students develop knowledge and skills in subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Economics and Business, the Arts and Civics and Citizenship through semester-long PBL units. These subjects are combined together through an extensive school-wide scope and sequence that ensures that the Australian Curriculum is addressed in all areas. A sample of our PBL units can be found below.
