PLUS Framework

Calvert’s framework for project-based learning is called PLUS. It actively engages students in PROJECTS that allow them to apply what they LEARN, USE it in practical and meaningful ways, and then SHOW it to demonstrate mastery and build confidence. Special attention is made to experiential and active “doing”, creative problem-solving and having students showcase their mastery with creative expression.
