This Week's Topic
Angela Wall, an instructor at Wayne Community College, and one of her students, Bernard Green, will explain to listeners what Project-Based Learning (PBL) is, why students benefit from it, how teachers can use it, and how to avoid pitfalls. The presenters will provide enough resources for teachers so they can conduct their own project. A very hands-on approach to dropout prevention!
