  12. 12. Philosophy Behind Case-Method/Project-Based Learning <ul><li>Students can see science in context . </li></ul><ul><li>Students learn better if there is an overarching theme that they can observe, question and interact with. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are far more interested in real learning environments than ones that are abstract, artificial or contrived. </li></ul><ul><li>Students can construct their own knowledge more easily if it’s based on their life experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Real projects present unstaged and unexpected situations that promote critical thinking . </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers cannot provide experiences without limits the way projects do. </li></ul><ul><li>Projects stimulate multiple intelligences . </li></ul>
