Teacher Development through Project-Based Learning: The Hollywood Elementary Story.
Glaser, Kathleen W.
Inspired by Lilian Katz's lectures and books, the staff of Hollywood Elementary School in southern Maryland embraced Katz's philosophy of developmentally appropriate programs, project learning, and multiage grouping. This paper describes Hollywood's journey as a school community to implement these strategies, discussing the multiage organization of the school, the project-based curriculum that takes advantage of the natural environment around the school, the role of the Arts, teachers' professional development and innovation, and the tangible and intangible results of implementing the changes.
