How students learn matters.

Students crave learning experiences that engage them in authentic and relevant problem solving. They are natural collaborators. When confronted with ill-defined and complex problems to solve, they instinctually reach out to peers to exchange ideas and develop creative solutions. In 2010 we began a school-wide effort, grounded in problem-based principles and pedagogy, to transform the way students learn in every content area, every day. This website is an effort to share our experiences with PBL curriculum redesign and implementation, distributed leadership to drive school change, and PBL-focused and designed professional learning to support teachers’ classroom practice.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
