Introduction In this paper, we address a set of findings from a larger study of professional development for teachers who use or plan to use the Project Approach. The Project Approach is considered by many to have particular value when it is used in combination with comprehensive curricula such as The Creative Curriculum for Preschool (Dodge, Colker, & Heroman, 2002) or High Scope (High/Scope Educational Research Foundation, 2003). In the United States, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) encourages teachers in its state-sponsored prekindergarten programs (called Preschool for All classrooms) to incorporate the Project Approach and to that end has supported a series of professional development institutes about the Project Approach for teachers.
