Project Based Learning (PBL) has repeatedly shown several benefits for students including a better understanding of content, higher engagement, and retention of subject matter. Several Studies have proven the effectiveness of PBL in a variety of areas such as 21st century competencies, motivation, and academic achievement. This includes studies that analyzed the effects in high poverty schools. Additionally, the results include positive outcomes for closing the achievement gap.
