Problem Based Learning
Houston Elementary School is proud to be the Problem Based Learning School in SC through a partnership with CERTL, Wake Forest University. In Problem Based Learning, PBL, students solve problems to gain new knowledge and integrate the new learning with existing knowledge. PBL problems are real world for students and place the students in real life roles. Problem Based is collaborative and highly interactive. Students develop interpersonal life-long learning skills and become self-directed learners.
Problem Based Learning motivates students to learn and solve problems that will prepare students for excelling in a global society. If you would like additional information or would like to see a PBL in action, please contact Mr. Hendry
