Summary

Projects are in-depth studies of a topic undertaken by a class, a group, or an individual child. Projects are intended to strengthen children's dispositions to be interested, absorbed, and involved in in-depth observation, investigation, and representation of worthwhile phenomena in their own environments. This Catalog on the Project Approach, the third of its kind, describes and illustrates projects done by children in early childhood and elementary classrooms on topics such as dogs, musical instruments, hens, bicycles, birds, grocery stores, restaurants, and books. Section 1 of the Catalog provides a brief overview of what a project is and offers some suggestions about how to get started. This section also discusses how young children's emerging mapping skills can be strengthened through project work. Section 2 describes some of the strategies used to help teachers and student teachers learn to use the Project Approach. A variety of course structures and support group arrangements are described, and the important role of administrators in supporting teachers' efforts is discussed. The findings of a survey of teachers using the Project Approach are also summarized. Section 3 offers examples of Project Approach efforts that can be accessed on the World Wide Web. Section 4 consists of the summaries of 17 projects, and the Catalog's final section, "Resources for Implementing the Project Approach," includes ERIC Digests, a glossary, recommended book titles, an ERIC bibliography on the Project Approach, information on a Project Approach summer institute and the Projects-L electronic discussion list, and a list of contributors to the Catalog.
