Envision Schools Project Exchange
Project-based learning by and for high school and other teachers.
Grade Level: Professional

The Project Exchange is an online place for teachers to share projects and collaborate with one another through sharing best practice in project design and implementation. It includes a library of project samples and accompanying instructional activities, resources, and assessments.
This site has a clean interface and is well organized. The curriculum library can be sorted by subject, school, and type of resource or by using the advanced search to find projects with the additional criteria of author, title, and state standards. Users must register for full access to all the features of the site.

Teachers who are interested in implementing project-based lessons in their classroom will want to bookmark this site for a host of resources from lesson plans to ideas about how to effectively implement PBL in your own school. The site is labeled as high school but there are plenty of materials that are easily adapted for middle school content areas as well as high school (science, math, language arts, social studies, and visual/performing arts). All of the materials are downloadable and ready to be replicated, adapted and built on according to each teachers curriculum needs. Teachers will also appreciate the Flash videos that describe the approach to project-based learning, conversations with PBL teachers and a documentary on the impact of PBL on student learning.
