Our fifth grade teachers seem to have a lot of projects going. . .some in class some out . . .I really don't know their process but at my former school that was 99% free lunch (whole school Title 1) my colleague would say it was much more time consuming, difficult, and draining to involve parents than without. For the history project he conferenced with them one on one and then distributed directions, materials (yes the board too) , and all required paperwork for them to complete at home. ( all provided by our site) If they chose not to engage in a project they could opt to write a paper and he would assist them with editing during a specialist time. He would have 2-3 sample boards completed and would review the process a few times with them in small groups . He felt it was his job to teach them the process regardless if they followed through at home. He felt that in middle school and high school they may not front load the process like he did. . .and just assign it.

I am very against teachers providing materials for state or district mandated projects at home or in class. If the teacher chooses to do a class project for enrichment that's different.
