Abstract: Project Based Learning (PBL) as a learning model with scientific approach will accustom students to do the inquiry process which is believed to be able to improve the quality of education. By implementing PBL which belongs to constructive approach, it will enable the students-centered learning, so it will facilitate students to innovatively and creatively transfer their knowledges to the real world situation. However, there are only a few teachers who entirely understand on how the PBL with scientific method should be implemented. Therefore, teachers still get difficulties on its implementation. In the literature review, the writer would like to emphasize on the importance of improving PBL to increase the quality of education in order to prepare the human resources which have competitive and comparative superiority based on demanded quality standard of the 21st century era. Many researchers have conveyed their findings about the strengths of PBL to increase knowledges, skills and attitudes, yet the writer also considers the problems faced by teachers in improving and implementing PBL. It is highly expected that the problem discussed in this literature review is relevant to trigger the pre-service training in preparing the teacher candidates and teachers at school in order that they are willing and able to implement this learning model.
