Neighborhood Sustainability Inventory
Time & Location
About the Event
Problem-based, placed-based lessons with emphasis on distance learning strategies that engage students in work that matters to their community. Science, engineering, civics, economics, geographic literacy, ELA, and media arts are integrated to produce neighborhood reports and a plan for communicating recommended improvements to stakeholders in local government. Career pathways are explored related to the kinds of jobs that serve neighborhood systems. The Lab features interaction with a team of highly capable students from the Sustainability Ambassadors Youth Leadership Program. Teacher teams from across the curriculum are encouraged. You and your colleagues are invited to sign up for one, some, or all of the Labs in the Series...
