Set Clear Goals and Objectives

Coach's Commentary

What will participants gain from having project-based learning in the program? What will they learn from a particular project?

  • Effective, high-quality, project-based learning is grounded in clear program goals and explicit project learning objectives for children and youth.
  • Program goals are long term, guiding selection of a year-long, program-wide range of activities and projects.
  • Project objectives specify the learning for a particular project.
  • To best meet youth needs, projects should be selected or designed with learning objectives to help achieve the long-term program goals.
