At the start of the 2016/2017 school year, Crystal River Elementary School adopted the Project-Based Learning Initiative (PBL) to guide their pedagogy. Throughout the year, Crystal River Educators will strive to implement this teaching method, which enables students to gain knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge.
