Engaging Children's Minds: The Project Approach

Katz, L.G. & Chard, S.C. (2000). Engaging Children’s Minds: The Project Approach. Stamford, CT: Albex Publishing Corporation.

This book defines how project-based learning is different from themes or units of study. It details the benefits of PB learning for the students and defines the four categories of learning goals (knowledge, skills, dispositions, and feelings). The roles of the teacher and students are defined and it assists you in finding topics, planning, working through projects, and evaluating. There are also concrete examples of projects included in the appendix.
