Project in progress

What is your wish for this project?

My wish for this project is for students to become advocates for an issue they identify and believe is important to address in their community. My wish is for students to be educated and empowered activists for sustainability and healthy living in their neighborhoods.

How are you going to do it?

My co-teacher and I are implementing a combined Roots & Shoots and Youth Service America (YSA) project in all of our Living Environment CTT classes (120 students) throughout the Human Impact Unit taught in April-May. We are having students identify the main cause of carbon emissions in the community using the mapping technique developed by Roots & Shoots. We are then having students write and implement community action plans in order to reduce carbon emissions in their community. more
