Educators are being challenged daily with IEPs, ELPs, ELL, and numerous other student accommodations. Projected-Based Learning offers a methodology which will increases student engagement while maintaining academic rigor. Soft skills, also known as 21st-Century Skills, help prepare the students for a post-education life. Project-Based Learning is by nature a methodology of student-driven course work with built-in differentiation. This includes content integration such as STEM classrooms and Humanities.
