Ever need some inspiration to start designing a new project? Browsing or critiquing existing project plans is one way to jump-start your own planning process. Project Exchange is an online library and workspace from Envision Schools, a group of charter schools in the California Bay Area. Envision Schools make the project approach central to the curriculum. Projects are academically rigorous and typically developed by teacher teams. They integrate both arts and technology. On the Project Exhange site, you'll find not only detailed plans but also teacher reflections and samples from student exhibitions. (You don't have to be part of the Envsion system to use these resources.) Find anything here that you might want to adapt to meet your own instructional goals?
