Project Based Learning

  • Project based learning (PBL) will be the style of enrichment for the Creative Inquiry Gifted and Talented program in the Cave Creek Unified School District. Within a PBL classroom, you will see students learning new content through a method that encourages choice, is challenging, and fun! Below are the main goals of the CCUSD's Creative Inquiry Class.

    • Students will work within collaborative groups, learning interdependence with like-minded peers, each bringing their own gifts to the group dynamic.
    • Students investigate, research, and explore real world problems within an area of interest.
    • Students will create a product that provides a solution to the problem, explains the problem with possible solutions, and/or increases awareness of the problem. 
    • Students share their solutions with a real world audience. 

     During the Project-based learning process, the students will practice and strengthen valuable 21st-century skills such as decision making, collaborating, critical thinking, creativity, and innovation.
