The study examined the impact of Project -Based Learning on reading and mathematics achievement of 7th and 8th grade students. Project-based learning deviates from the customary school practices and is an innovative strategy used in the curriculum to engage students in solving authentic problems for deeper learning experiences. The association between a student's participation in PBL and achiement in reading and mathematics shows that PBL does make a difference and would likely hold up to the demands of accountability.
