Lost in Action.
Sewall, Gilbert T.
American Educator, v24 n2 p4-9,42-43 Sum 2000
While projects and activities have a legitimate place in the classroom, activities enthusiasts often substitute ersatz activity and shallow content for hard, serious work of the mind. Successful projects and activities require more planning, care, and work from teachers than standard lessons. No substitute exists for the foundations of education, yet too many activities avoid facts and academic mastery. (SM)
