Use our Water Day toolkit as a step-by-step guide for creating a global lesson using a project-based inquiry (PBI) approach that will drive student-led investigations on this precious resource.
The PBI approach:
1) Promotes deeper levels of thinking and analysis and pushes the inquiry process to the next level by emphasizing creation of artifacts, which lead to better understanding of content.
2) Transforms information into usable knowledge by offering students experiential, create-to-learn opportunities that take them beyond topics in order to grasp the material conceptually.
3) Structures reflection and self-monitoring as a well-defined, purposeful process that contributes to deeper learning.
4) Empowers students to take control of their learning, making self-directed learning the norm.
