Abstract

Designing and implementing emergency education solutions during an ongoing crisis is a significant issue. Since 2007, the Israeli blockade and the ongoing conflict have had a significant negative impact on the education sector in Gaza. This field note addresses the issues affecting the education sector in the Gaza Strip and outlines Project-Based Learning (PBL), an education technique for developing leadership abilities that could serve as an emergency response to education. This intervention was done with 76 third graders from Al Zaitun Coed Elementary C School in Gaza and two classes of third graders were selected at random. The participants were separated into two groups of equal size, each containing 38 pupils. The experimental group was taught English using the project-based learning strategy, whereas the control group was instructed using the traditional way. The research instrument was an observation card on which the student's leadership qualities were scored prior to and after application. On the post-application observation card, the experimental group's leadership skills were rated higher on average by the results. These findings were attributable to the project-based learning technique, which the researchers advocate for developing leadership abilities in English classes.

Keywords: Education Under Siege, Project-Based Learning, Leadership Skills.
