Merit Academy in­tro­duces Project Based Learn­ing

Serve Daily - - MERIT ACADEMY -

eval­u­ate suc­cesses and fail­ures, and re­vise the­o­ries to cre­ate a pol­ished prod­uct.

Stu­dents learn how to take ini­tia­tive and re­spon­si­bil­ity for their own ed­u­ca­tion. They build con­fi­dence as they learn to solve prob­lems and think crit­i­cally. PBL teaches stu­dents team­work, ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion skills.

One im­por­tant as­pect of PBL is that stu­dents make their work pub­lic by pre­sent­ing it to peo­ple out­side the class­room, thus en­cour­ag­ing them to pro­duce high-qual­ity work.

Af­ter com­plet­ing a project, stu­dents bet­ter un­der­stand what they’ve learned. They re­mem­ber and re­tain it longer. Per­haps the most im­por­tant as­pect of this phi­los­o­phy, how­ever, is that stu­dents de­velop a pow­er­ful love of learn­ing which re­sults in a life­time pur­suit of knowl­edge, cre­ativ­ity and real-world prob­lem solv­ing. We look for­ward to you join­ing us on this amaz­ing jour­ney.

Stu­dents at Merit Academy in Springville are par­tic­i­pat­ing in Project Based Learn­ing, a learn­ing style that en­cour­ages them to be­come ac­tive and en­gaged schol­ars.
