Both institutions were engaged in an exchange of educational experience through study trips until The different attitude and the ambivalence of Kilpatrick and Dewey with regard to the race question in the USA will also be mentioned.
Claims of the more recent German Dewey reception that there was no interest in Dewey, Kilpatrick and American education in Germany between are given critical examination. Keywords: William H. The academic teacher who was considered the spearhead of that progressive direction within the wide field of education, was embodied by Kilpatrick. It was special circumstances that made Kilpatrick the leading figure in American project pedagogy for the next two decades. Although the expectations of supporters of the project idea were greater than could be confirmed by the reality of everyday school life, today we may say that the international long-term effects have been greater than one might have expected.
Thus, it is quite normal for schools today, at least in Germany, to offer project days or even a project week as a supplement to the normal curriculum every school year. Children then choose a topic from a range of subjects and work on it in a group.

The results will be presented to parents and the public at a closing event. Project-based learning today is one of the established alternative methods in school and the education system.
The educational idea of the project had already gained a foothold in the United States more than three decades earlier, most strongly in manual training schools and vocational schools for the agricultural and industrial professions. Here project work developed in several didactic directions. From , the project method had been considered as a standard method in vocational schools and also mentioned in textbooks of general pedagogy in the USA Knoll , f.
So, it was by no means new virgin territory that Kilpatrick entered with his essay. Rather, it was already a pedagogically cultivated area. Such and more information with a detailed historical retrospect on the project idea, how it came from the USA to Europe and spread here during the economic and scientific success of an up-and-coming America, can be found in the book by Michael Knoll Knoll had also published his research in many individual articles in American specialist magazines since the s.
Knoll addresses this question in detail, and I will return to this briefly in this essay. There was a volume edited in by the German educationalist and representative of New Education, Peter Petersen It contained essays, translated into German, by both William H. Kilpatrick and John Dewey. For the first time in Germany texts by Dewey and Kilpatrick were placed under a common educational point of reference.
The first part of my research deals with the personal relationships of the actors and the time contexts from which this book emerged. I would like to suggest a reassessment of this point of view. No one asked about the hi story that made this volume possible.
Du Bois. This idea was realized, later, for example, with the Jigsaw Technique initiated by social psychologist Elliot Aronson see his Wikipedia entry. Kilpatrick was a Southerner in detail: Beineke , pp. Kilpatrick took his B. He first worked as a teacher and Principal at Georgia public schools from But the conflict was much deeper because Kilpatrick saw his integrity violated by personal accusations Beineke, , pp.
During his time as a teacher Kilpatrick had already attended summer courses and spent shorter stays at several universities, so again in at Johns Hopkins. As early as Kilpatrick had visited Francis W. With work on an historical topic he received his doctorate in from Paul Monroe at Columbia University. Kilpatrick spent the rest of his academic life there. At TCCU he became a lecturer in education in , assistant professor in , associate professor in and full professor in , retiring in as emeritus professor. Kilpatrick remained associated with the TCCU throughout his life.
He held many public offices in the service of the common good and received many academic honours Parker, , p. I entered upon my work with Prof. Dewey thinking that in philosophy he was still a neo-Hegelian. For a time, Dewey — along with many others — had followed his neo-Hegelian line; and I, too, after working in philosophy at Johns Hopkins in , had accepted it as my personal outlook. But now I found that Dewey, stressing the conception of process, the continuity of nature, and the method of inductive science, had built an entirely new philosophy, later called Experimentalism.
As I worked with him during three constructive years, I gave up neo-Hegelianism and accepted instead the new viewpoint, thereby gaining a fresh and invigorating outlook in life and thought. From that time until Prof. Also, personally, his close relationship with Dewey is evident. Kilpatrick was a founding member of the John Dewey Society in , and editor of its first yearbook Beineke, , p.
Boyd Bode and presented by Kilpatrick ibid. The philosopher Dewey and the experimental psychologist Thorndike were more opponents than friends in their different epistemological views Tomlinson, It was Thorndike, not Dewey, who had the greatest success in professionalizing teacher training, by introducing empirical methods and research into learning theory Retter, , p. I was then teaching a course in Principles of Education; so, I made a list of philosophic problems that troubled me in this course and turned them over to Dewey. At first, he rejected my list, but later he redefined a number of the problems and these now appear as chapters in the completed book Kilpatrick, , p.
Shall we admit the stranger? Not wisely unless two preliminary questions have first been answered in the affirmative: First, is there behind the proposed term and waiting even now to be christened a valid notion or concept which promises to render appreciable service in educational thinking? Because the question as to the concept and its worth is so much more significant than any matter of mere names, this discussion will deal almost exclusively with the first of the two inquiries Kilpatrick, , p.
What is a project, pedagogically speaking? The demand is not made here that the project method should take the place of the normal curriculum completely. In fact, in the years that followed, the general discussion went exactly in this direction. Kilpatrick tells the reader in that he has long recognized the need to make the manifold relationships of the variables of educational processes practicable through a unifying concept.
It is important to see that Kilpatrick stresses the ethical dimension of purposeful action. Since education is not a means to living but is identical with the operation of living a life which is fruitful and inherently significant, the only ultimate value which can be set up is just the process of living itself Dewey, MW 9, p.
The old psychology or better: physiology divided action in stimulus and response, Dewey criticized. He replaced this difference by the claim that stimulus and response which creates action are only two phases of the same thing. Coordination happens between different parts of the same matter in an organic circuit. Dewey assumed that action has its condition by instrumentally successful working coordination. The whole model, however, is a mixture of common sense and speculation — anyhow, it is not clear in the details. He saw the whole thing in a more practical way.
Kilpatrick formulated, standing in the bucket line with Dewey without mentioning Dewey :. A man who habitually so regulates his life with reference to worthy social aims meets at once the demands for practical efficiency and of moral responsibility. Such a one presents the ideal of democratic citizenship. We of America [sic!
The conception before us promises a definite step towards the attainment of this end. If the purposeful act be in reality the typical unit of the worthy life, then it follows that to base education on purposeful acts is exactly to identify the process of education with worthy living itself. The two then become the same. Kilpatrick, ibid. This idea then finds its acme insofar that the thus normatively determined educational process has a democratic quality. The democratic citizen in a democratic society is both a prerequisite and an objective of the project method.
Indirectly, it becomes clear that the teacher does not play a bossy, dominant role, but is rather the preparing arranger of open-start situations in the role of a coordinator. There is also no question here of checking what has been learned. The teacher has to steer the child through the difficulties which accompany project work.
Tasks can be too simple or too difficult, the use of required tools must first be learned etc. Today one should add: This is an old educational wisdom, but in a modern performance society absolutely far from reality. At least in the normal learning process, the theoretical demands of the teaching contents grow with the increasing age of the pupils in higher education. Type 1, where the purpose is to embody some idea or plan in external form, as building a boat, writing a letter, presenting a play;. Type 2, where the purpose is to enjoy some aesthetic experience, like listening to a story, hearing a symphony, appreciating a picture;.
Type 3, where the purpose is to straighten out some intellectual difficulty, to solve some problem[s], e.
Jekelius E. Significantly, the history of law chairs within German universities were, almost exclusively, concerned with the domain of civil law. As the mother of so many other children she would not want that for her, so it would be better if she died. The Poles in the Ruhr Valley min. A superb documentation of this discussion can be found at http: This includes the text of Michael Fahlbusch's presentation at the Sept. Under the law, doctors forcibly sterilised more than , people.
Type 4, where the purpose is to obtain some item or degree of skill or knowledge, like learning to write at grade 14 on the Thorndike Scale, or learning the irregular verbs in French. It is at once evident that these groupings more or less overlap and that one type may be used as a means to another end. Kilpatrick defines the so-called problem-based method as a special case of the project to eliminate it as a competing model and explains these four types. Kilpatrick closed:. With the child naturally social and with the skillful teacher to stimulate and guide his purposing, we can especially expect that kind of learning we call character building.
This meant the end of the traditional school subjects.
