When a young girl from Cuba arrived in Lua’s PBL class, she had zero English.
But within two months, because of a hands-on project, she was able to deliver full presentations in her second language.
In this episode, I sit down with Lua Yaganagi and her adorable students, in a mixed-age primary PBL classroom in Rizhao, China to hear how projects ranging from building a class garden, to designing Olympic Games helped students:
- Acquire reading, writing and listening ESL skills.
- Grow in confidence.
- Co-teach their younger peers.
- Discover their personal passions.
- Improve their English speaking vocabulary.
