Teaching Against the Grain: One Title I School's Journey Toward Project-Based Literacy Instruction

Parsons, S. A., Metzger, S. R. & Askew, J., Carswell, A. R., (2011). Teaching against the grain: One title I school's journey toward project-based literacy instruction. Literary Research and Instruction, 50 (1), 1-14.

One school took a project-based learning approach to raising test scores instead of teaching literacy in programmatic ways. Professional development emphasizing project-based literacy was provided to teachers and the types of implementation and teachers feelings about the instruction were examined.  Student outcomes were not a part of the study; instead it focused on teacher implementation after receiving professional development.
