Explore, Question, Ponder, and Imagine: Projects Give Kids the Chance To Delve Deeply and Find Their Own Way through Challenging Intellectual Terrain.
Northwest Education, v7 n3 p2-7 Spr 2002
The project approach to learning engages students' natural bent for discovery through observation, play, hands-on tasks, and real-world challenges. Project-based learning complements systematic instruction in basic skills by making discrete bits of information relevant. Teachers must design projects that provide enough latitude for student initiative and direct students toward mastery of challenging standards. (TD)
