What is PBL?
In Project Based Learning (PBL), students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. Students learn key academic content and practice 21st Century Skills (such as collaboration, communication & critical thinking).
Students gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and standards at the heart of a project. Projects also build vital workplace skills and lifelong habits of learning. Projects can allow students to address community issues, explore careers, interact with adult mentors, use technology, and present their work to audiences beyond the classroom. PBL can motivate students who might otherwise find school boring or meaningless.
Aboriginal history has been neglected in Australian schools and we don’t know much about it.
How can we educate ourselves, our friends and our family more about the experiences, culture and history of Aboriginal Australians so we can build respect and help to stop racism?
Produce something to educate people about Aboriginal history:
-An artwork with traditional aboriginal elements or using things from nature
-Make a PowerPoint presentation
-Dramatic play use props
-Use photographs – collage
-Writing/Word processing/newspaper article
-Papier mache
-Interview a person and video it
-Make a wiki/website/blog
-An advertisement
-Construct a model
