About the Challenge

  • A Challenge is immediate, actionable and builds excitement.
  • Choosing and setting up the Challenge is crucial. If it is interesting and sufficiently close to home, pupils will derive personal meaning and feel a sense of accomplishment upon understanding the content, proposing and implementing a Solution.
  • If the Challenge is too broad or vague, the pupils will struggle. If it is too narrow, they will not be able to experience the self-direction that is required to develop the skills that CBL cultivates.
  • Challenges should be difficult and have multiple possibilities for Solutions, as well as organized and scaffolded to support the Learners.
