In our initial meeting, we spoke about the locations of the schools. We discussed the education area of Lamar, the administration governing the schools and the number of schools in the region. From our research, we found out that Lamar city consists of five schools ;Primary School, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and Lamar Career & Technical Center. We also discussed the history of the area. In this discussion, we talked about where people work in agriculture, ranches, and trading. We found out that the area is known for being the home of President Harry Truman. It is located about 292 miles west St. Louis in a beautiful agricultural land with 5.43 square miles area. The population of the area is approximately 4500 with 95% being whites while the rest are from different ethnicities; 0.7% African Americans, 0.3% Asians, 0.6% Native Americans.

This was important in helping us identify the subjects that needed improvement, making a three-year plan for professional development and offering solutions to the current problems. By studying the data for different subjects during the last three years and the effect on students’ comprehension, we could determine the current problems with the system. Moreover, the study would help us find a solution to solve the current problems. Comparing information from different areas was very beneficial in terms of identifying problems and making suggestions.
In the third meeting, we discussed the results of our data research on the previous two meetings. We realized that half of the students in grades 3 to 8 had bad results in English. In mathematics, we identified that at least half of the students had good results. However, less than half of the students had good results

Problem Based Learning is efficient and effective mode of conveying the medical education in rational, comprehensive programs, the newly introduced technique has several advantages over traditional methods of teaching. The modified version of learning that emphasis more on problem solving has certain objectives attached to it, firstly the technique desires further motivation of student's learning capabilities, and provide them with an opportunity to exercise them in easy manner, after having studied the problem itself.
Learning happens either as a self study or Directed study with experienced learners. Web based learning is best suited for such learning exercises. Secondly, there are also learning sessions that happen through instructor-led, live, real-time learning processes (Robert H Jackson, 15 Jul 2006).
In EBL the student takes the front role in acquisition of knowledge and is self-directed facilitating deeper learning and experience out of the lecture halls. Enquiry based learning can be of varying forms in different disciplines. However, whatever format an EBL can take the concept remains the same.
