The Windows Workshop Pack originally consisted of a continually updated compilation of workshop sheets.
The sheets documented each game as it was first played, though some were originally booklets and others were revised on reprint. They provided basic details, ideas and examples of work.
Childrens' work shown on the sheets was selected to be representative, both of ability and style, rather than exemplary.
The book includes most of the games from the sheets, and additionally suggests variations
and discusses working methods and problems.
Since new games or variations have been and are constantly being developed
by many of the writers now involved with the Project, this book will soon
cease to include all the Project's games. However, it is hoped that it will
provide a guide to many that have been well tried and tested and that its
general information will be of continuing use.
The games, arranged in four sections, are discussed with their uses,
variations and place in developing skills. A final section looks at specific
aspects of their use in school and community, briefly answering those
questions which have been most commonly raised over the years.
Although the games described in this book were created either by myself or
Dave Ward, we would like to thank the many writers who have worked with the
Windows Project who have contributed their individual skills to the playing
and development of them.
