Creativity Counts!

Megan Payne

In Year 1 of the YEC grant, educators from YEC districts authored 70 problem-based learning units ranging from grade 6–12 in math, ELA, technology, social studies, science, and career tech. Problem-based learning is an instructional approach designed to encourage students to conduct research and apply knowledge and skills to solve a problem. This student-centered approach to learning promotes creative thinking, teamwork, problem solving, and flexibility, which are all important skills for success in college and on the job. Many of the units that have been designed by YEC teachers are cross curricular and extremely creative! Doesn’t this pique your interest to learn more?
