Justin Wells Envision Education

Justin Wells is a founding faculty member of Envision Education, a small group of charter high schools in the San Francisco Bay Area rooted in project-based learning. For nine years, he taught English and led teacher teams in the design and implementation of semester-long, multi-disciplinary projects that drew recognition, media coverage, and research attention from ABC News, KQED, Stanford University, the Oracle Education Foundation, and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. Currently, as Vice President of Programs for Envision Learning Partners, he helps schools and school districts develop performance assessment systems guided by the principles of deeper learning and project-based learning. He is co-author of the book, Transforming Schools with Common Core Standards, Performance Assessment, and Project-Based Learning (with Bob Lenz and Sally Kingston).
