This bestselling book has been completely updated and expanded to help teachers use the project approach in child care centers, in preschools, and in kindergarten, 1st grade, and early childhood special education classrooms. For those new to using projects, the book introduces the approach and provides step-by-step guidance for conducting meaningful projects.

Experienced teachers will find the teacher interviews, children’s work, photographs (including full color), and teacher journal entries used to document the project process in actual classrooms very useful.

This popular, easy-to-use resource has been expanded to include these new features: ‘Explicit instructions and examples for incorporating standards into the topic selection and planning process. ‘A variety of nature experiences, with examples that show how project work is an excellent way to connect children to the natural world. ‘An update of the use of technology for both documentation and investigations, including use of the Web as well as and video and digital cameras. ‘More toddler projects that reflect our increased knowledge from recent mind/brain research about toddler understanding and learning.

Great August 2, 2011
Helm does a really great job of explaining the child-directed nature of the Project Approach. She shows how to make the process come alive inside as well as outside of the classroom. I would recommend this to instructors as a text for students in an Early Childhood Curricula or a Methods and Materials class. Students really got to experience how the Project Approach in teaching helps young children choose the trajectory of what they want to learn. Children can take their learning to creative places, of which early childhood teachers might not even dream!
