Resource Summary

The ideas in Teaching through Projects can be used in grades 3-6 for both classroom and out-of-school programs. Projects can make learning meaningful to students lives in ways that subject-by-subject teaching cannot and can motivate students to take charge of their own learning. Teaching through Projects helps teachers become coaches and mentors by setting up a model for integrated learning. You'll find successful projects, teaching strategies, and project design to increase students interest and motivation while meeting curriculum demands. The approach will help your students develop literacy and thinking skills by building on a wide variety of activities and interests. 1996, ISBN: 978-0201495072
