    Project-based learning (PBL) was a cornerstone of the Laboratory School curriculum and is very well documented in journals and publications where Malcolm Price Laboratory School faculty frequently published articles related to this methodology.  Diane McCarty's fourth-grade classroom was no exception. From 1992 through 1999 Diane regularly published the results of her classroom projects in teacher journals such as K-8 Teaching.

    As an instructor at the lab school from 1965 through 1988, Mrs. Duee impacted the lives of many students who recall her with much fondness. A quick look at her vitae shows just how far beyond the lab school walls her influence was able to reach. From the creation of the Beginning Reading Conference, to numerous curriculum projects, even helping with the teacher’s guide for the PBS show “3, 2, 1, Contact” and more, Joan exemplifies the mission of the lab school and the teaching profession.
