Welcome to Illinois Projects in Practice (IllinoisPIP), part of the Illinois Early Learning Web site!

IllinoisPIP provides support, resources, and information for teachers, specialists, administrators, and trainers interested in the implementation of the Project Approach in Illinois classrooms for preschool children.

A project is an in-depth investigation of a topic undertaken by a class, a group of children, or an individual child in an early childhood classroom or at home.

The Project Approach helps young children meet the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards!

IllinoisPIP is coordinated by Lilian G. Katz and Rebecca Swartz, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Sallee Beneke, at St. Ambrose University.
