2. The Project Approach: Meeting the State Standards

Grafton Elementary School


This paper suggests that when engaged in project work, children apply most of the skills identified in the age-appropriate state learning standards. To illustrate how good-quality project work addresses the Illinois state learning standards, this paper describes a project conducted by a second-grade class on their community—Grafton, Illinois. The paper focuses on two children who, as part of the Grafton project, studied churches in the community. The paper describes the project’s three phases and discusses how, through the process of investigating a topic of interest to them, representing their new knowledge, and sharing their work with others, the children applied the skills identified by the Illinois state learning standards as necessary for early elementary school students.

  • 3. Assessment to Prevent Reading Failure in Young Children

    Joseph K. Torgesen

    American Educator

    Spring/Summer 1998

    reprinted by permission

    One of the most compelling findings from recent reading research is that children who get off to a poor start in reading rarely catch up. As several studies have now documented, the poor first-grade reader almost invariably continues to be a poor reader And the consequences of a slow start in reading become monumental as they accumulate exponentially over time. As Stanovich pointed out in his well-known paper on the "Matthew effects" associated with failure to acquire early word reading skills, these consequences range from negative attitudes toward reading, to reduced opportunities for vocabulary growth, to missed opportunities for development of reading comprehension strategies, to less actual practice in reading than other children receive.
