This literature review examines research on project-based learning to determine where successful implementation of project-based learning has taken place across various content areas and grade levels. Data was collected from Google Scholar and the DeWitt Library. The research reveals the importance of implementation of project-based learning as a tool to increase student engagement across the entire educational process.
