PBL 2020 Perspectives Project

Perspectives 2020: Telling the Stories of our Community

What is the PBL Perspectives Project? 
The project stemmed from a recommendation by the Phase 2+ Working Advisory Groups to have a community-wide Project Based Learning (PBL) opportunity that could be implemented in homes or in classrooms. The Group felt this would give students the ability to tell their stories and experiences from 2020, whether it’s about being a child living during a global pandemic, racial injustice, political events, wildfires or anything else that has impacted them through the past year. In addition, it would give students the opportunity to be the creators of primary source documents for future generations who will study this time in history. 

The project aspires to foster learning that:

  • Builds connections within our community

  • Supports students in processing the trauma they may have experienced since last March

  • Enables families with different ages of kids to connect with each other and work together

  • Showcases the varying viewpoints and experiences within BVSD
