Project ALEX

Alex logo

ALEX is short for the Alabama  Learning Exchange. Alex is a free site where Alabama teachers can find Alabama Courses of Study Content Standards, lesson plans, and other helpful resouces. This week our assignment was to explore and upload two content standards from grade levels of our choice and also the core standards for technology education. Our next task was to create a personal workspace. The last assignment was to access lesson plans for our content area and grade level of our choice, create bookmarks for the lesson plans that we might want to use in the future and then upload two of these plans to our websites. I have included six pdf files under the ALEX assignmnent.


  1. Allison,
    Your post about ALEX is clear, concise and to the point, which is good for me. I prefer direct communication without added fluff. The link took me to your Google Site as planned and I could find everything you listed with ease, except for the Technology Standards (I couldn't find the PDF). I really liked the layout of your site. The simple lines and colors didn't overpower, in fact it helped me to hone in on the items for which I was searching! Nice job overall. Keep up the good work!

    1. Sorry Lynn, I am not sure what I did to the Tech Standards PDF. It is there now. Thank you for bringing it to my attention so that I could fix it.

  2. Hi Allison,

    I like how you introduced ALEX and the project assignment in your blog post, and then linked to the 6 pdf's. Great job with the project.

  3. Well done.

    Did you find ALEX useful? How extensively will you use it?
