2 Abstract The purpose of this study is to examine the empirical research supporting the effectiveness, or ineffectiveness of Problem-based Learning (PBL) as a teaching method. On the other hand, if PBL is an effective method, what does research say about the relevance of PBL in connection to the school curriculum. It needs to take in depth, the critical look at the existing research to find any commodities or any major contradictory findings. Results show that there is contradictory evidence regarding the effectiveness of PBL as a teaching method with the majority of support for PBL coming from the educational field. Results also show that very little research exists concerning how PBL relates to the guidelines set out in the US School Curriculum.

3 Introduction Everyone knows that being a teacher in a modern day needs the immeasurable amount of tools and equipment for teaching; from pseudo-parents for social values, two psychologists who understand the needs of each student. Therefore, it is important that all teachers be fully equipped with ability to modify their teaching methods to match learning abilities. Teaching methods are changing, and new methods are introduced to meet our teaching in learning. The Problem-based Learning (PBL) method is highly recommended teaching in present time. It shouldn’t be accepted new methods as “the best” without closer scrutiny. As future teachers, it is important for teachers to have teaching methods for future students to be not only proficient in a certain subject, but also proficient in pedagogical methods. This research will look into both positive and negative aspects of PBL and the success and failure rates of PBL as an inductive method. If PBL is the best method, it should be recommended to use in classrooms. The constructivist method of PBL is the main channel of this research as PBL has been conducted by many as the best method to have through findings. Objective The goal of this paper is to clarify PBL as a teaching method and the experimental evidence which supports its effectiveness. Questions Based on the above stated objectives, the following research questions should be conducted for the field of PBL. What is the experimental evidence with the advantages and disadvantages of PBL in the classroom?

4 If PBL is effective, and then what is the recommendation for these findings into curriculum? What is PBL? Howard Barrow (1996) who is an American physician and medical educator defined that PBL as a learning method which involves the student centered learning as small groups lead by a tutor or expert, rather than traditional teaching. The tutor guides the students toward finding answers on their own rather than to provide the correct answer. Throughout the guiding process the tutor

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
