Houston, we have a problem!


Problem-Based Learning allows students to come to conclusions based upon previous experience and knowledge.  Often students are surprised at how much they actually know about certain subjects.  This would be beneficial in seminary because many students don’t realize that they do have strong testimonies and beliefs about gospel topics.  Case studies that are relatable and relevant to teenagers are one effective way to employ this model.  For example, with the doctrinal mastery initiative students are asked to complete practice exercises after learning about a particular topic.  This would work well when we cover the commandments at the end of the school year.  Problems such as someone who acts like a Christian on Sundays but not Monday-Saturday.  Or examples of someone not thinking that breaking certain commandments are not a big deal.  Great options with this method in seminary!
