Wheeler, Charlene; Blank, Jolyn
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v13 n2 Fall 2011
This article documents a first project undertaken by kindergarten children and their teacher in a public school in the southeastern United States. Images, work samples, records of children's comments, and the teacher's description tell the story of the project as it unfolds. The authors provide interpretation of the project events documented in terms of situating the Project Approach in a standards-based school context. (Contains 67 figures.)
