The second part of the issue contains a special section on the Project Approach. Following an introduction by Lilian Katz, the articles in this section are: (1) "Dynamic Aims: The Use of Long-Term Projects in Early Childhood Classrooms in Light of Dewey's Educational Philosophy" (Michael Glassman and Kimberlee Whaley); (2) "The Project Approach: Meeting the State Standards" (Dot Schuler); (3) "Linking Standards and Engaged Learning in the Early Years" (Judy Harris Helm and Gaye Gronlund); (4) "Continuity and Purpose in the Design of Meaningful Project Work" (Amy McAninch); and (5) "Implementing the Project Approach in Part-Time Early Childhood Education Programs" (Sallee Beneke).
