Stanley Richards - Digital Curriculum Manager at PBLWorks - The Effectiveness of PBL within the AP Environment. This is episode 395 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Stanley Richards is the Digital Curriculum Manager at PBLWorks.

Stanley joined PBLWorks as the program manager for an ongoing partnership between PBLWorks and Lucas Education Research (LER) to study the effectiveness of PBL within a high stakes AP environment. He supports the professional development and coaching of teachers to implement AP Environmental Science and AP Government curricula in school districts all over the country.
