Physics That Works - Project Based Curriculum
This year-long high school physics curriculum situates standards-based science learning in authentic contexts. Students undertake extended workplace-related projects where they acquire and apply science knowledge and skills. The curriculum is based on the principle that all students learn better and more deeply when they learn in context, and on the belief that such an approach offers students who have not been engaged by abstract science the opportunity to achieve on a par with their peers. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, one link is to the developer's site (TERC) and the other to the publisher's website.
