What Educators & Students Say About POGIL

"(Since I implemented POGIL) I've come to know my students better than ever and the class is always fresh. My students are active and engaged and frequently don't want to leave at the end of class. Students have become less afraid of frustration and are willing to try and figure things out on their own. They are faster at making connections, applying material to new problems, and the questions they ask are better, more informed, and often very probing."

—Andy Bressette, Berry College

SEPEHR VAKILI | York Suburban High School, PA
I feel like the POGIL program brings people together. It creates a collaborative environment where people can share their ideas and progressively work through the problems to achieve their goal.
