Hi! My name is Kate Dulmaine and I am so excited to be teaching the new Project-Based Learning class at Polenta Elementary this year!

What is Project-Based Learning?  Project-based learning teaches children children critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. PBL presents students with a problem. Students will work collaboratively with their peers to dissect, examine, and solve the problem. Students will learn how to look at problems from various angles, brainstorm, and anticipate and overcome obstacles. PBL challenges students to think creatively, work together, and persevere to follow projects through to their completion.

How will Project-Based Learning be Implemented?  PBL can take many forms and takes place in many classrooms throughout our school everyday. Our new PBL enhancement will use community service as our springboard, which is just AWESOME! Students will work together to analyze problems they see in our community and world and discuss, plan, and implement solutions to those problems. How amazing is that?! Our kids will be learning and working to understand, examine, and analyze problems and create and implement solutions, all while helping to make the world a better place! I am so thrilled to be able to assist our children in this process and truly hope to help develop their minds and hearts to help them realize that big or small, young or old, they can make a difference in the world!  

We will be reaching out to the community to look for ways to help our neighbors and develop partnerships with individuals and businesses in our area- and maybe even to look for volunteers, too! If this type of work speaks to your heart, please make sure to go to the Johnston County Public School website, here, and fill out a volunteer application. We'd love to have you helping us helping others!

If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, or anything you'd like to share, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at catherinedulmaine@johnston.k12.nc.us.
