Abstract:In this paper we intend to highlight an important issue of education, related to one of the most recommended teaching and learning strategies today, which is The project Based Learning.
We are willing in this study to diagnose the relation between lessons’ goals, outcomes, and project based learning strategy. We will treat this subject through the following Key Question:
How accurate is the Project based learning strategy’s implementation in meeting language courses’ competencies and goals in different trends and levels of Arabic Language classes? And how it reflects on its different courses and program outcomes?
We are willing here to identify the cons and pros in using the PBL method in Arabic language classes, and diagnose the gap building between methods used in teaching & learning and the subject area itself, using the example of the BTC’s BED3's Arabic specialists.
In this course we intend to diagnose, analyze, and compare the impact of the use of the Project Based learning strategy on students’ progress level and performance in both Content and Teaching methods in Arabic Writing class.
