When teachers implement the project approach to learning, young children can follow their own real-world interests to gain deeper understanding. Children wonder about a topic, formulate their questions, and then figure out the answers for themselves in their own way.
The project approach helps children dig deeply into
intellectual and social experiences that can help them see meaningful benefits
of the skills they are acquiring. Picturing the Project Approach will lead
teachers every step of the way toward incorporating this teaching method in any
toddler, preschool or elementary classroom. Paperback. 120 pages.
Teachers will learn how to:
- Identify a topic
- Decide on a project
- Develop the project
- Share the learning
- Bring the project to a close
