When done well, PBL gives students a relevant and authentic task—a problem or challenge—that they, as a team and as individuals, must explore and solve.

I think this is a great idea. I feel that we need to incorperate this into the high school curriculum, however I have been having a hard time coming up with ideas to create a project like this. Anyone have any thoughts??
