January 15, 2003 Project-Based Learning: a Primer By Gwen Solomon Walk into team teachers Mike Smith and Jetti Matzke’s interdisciplinary classroom at Napa New Technology High School in California and you will see students at work-writing in online journals, doing research on the Internet, meeting in groups to plan and create Web sites and digital media presentations, and evaluating their peers for collaboration and presentation skills.

It's called project-based learning, and it's designed to engage students and empower them with responsibility for their own education in ways unheard of in traditional classrooms.
