Excerpt from Sample Projects: Second Series
The second series of sample projects is issued in pursuance of the plan announced in the first number published in September, 1920. Since many are using the material for study in courses in education, a number of contributions have been included to provide the basis for discussion of various moot questions. For example, can projects be classified? If so, how? Is it useful to attempt it? Can the teacher plan in advance or must she depend entirely upon chance to determine her course? Do projects always involve correlations? Do they always proceed to some objective result.?
How can projects be most usefully described? What are the advantages and disadvantages of indicating certain definite steps or stages in the process? Should the writer take the point of view of the teacher? Of the pupils? Or of both? Which feature of the account is of greatest value to other teachers? This series is introduced with a criticism and analysis of a piece of project work done in a class in English conducted as a demonstration class for students in the summer session of Teachers College, , by Miss Olive Ely Hart, head of the department of English in the South Philadelphia High School for Girls. An account of this work by Miss Hart herself will be found in the English Journal for ,.November, 1920, under the title, Friends by Mail. It was thought that this criticism would serve as an outline for similar studies. A more formal outline, by the editor of the series, which appeared in the English Journal for November, 1918 has also been included to meet urgent requests for it.
To those who have permitted the printing of their accounts in. this pamphlet thanks are due. Many of them are numbered among the original subscribers to the enterprise. Others have both contributed and subscribed. The task of developing the ideal embodied more or less clearly in these accounts will now be taken up by the newly organized National Conference on Educational Method and its monthly journal.
