Green Scholars and Green Apprentices
Green Scholar Course:
Scholars take an environmental education “placed based” approach to engage people in learning about and connecting to their immediate environments. This includes CESL “Cooperative Environmental Sustainability Learning” which is an ongoing student (or teacher) lead classroom activity that increases students knowledge of environmental sustainability. Using a given format students independently design and conduct a lesson with the class on an assigned environmental sustainability issue
Green Apprentices Course:
Green Apprentices is the alternative course for students with different interests and needs. It is a work study program where students enrolled collaborate with community members, staff, Green Scholars, and each other on researching, identifying, developing and instituting logical, environmentally sustainable and cost effective green initiatives. Green initiatives managed by Green Apprentices help reflect the program’s central mission of increasing individual responsibility and passion for sustainable living practices, all while assisting Scholars on their community initiatives.
Essential Aspects of the Course:
Project Management: While students engage in these lessons, they will further expand their knowledge through an environmental sustainability based project. These projects allows for explicit instruction and guided practice of “Getting It Done” skills.
Project & Course Resources: Teachers and faculty members will be provided their own resources to help facilitate the courses. This includes access to an array of rubrics and grading criteria, as well as additional resources and tools for projects and lessons. Sustainability School Evaluations to assess a school's ability to meet their sustainability goals and project lists with an array of potential project ideas will also be included.
Getting it Done Skills: Students will learn all the necessary professional tools every functioning adult needs to be successful. This includes lessons on time management, effective communication, interview practice, research skills, and critical thinking.
Environmental Literacy: Helps students make choices on how to live their lives sustainability while motivating them to work towards solutions. Weekly lessons will cover topics ranging from earth systems and climate change, to human population dynamics and consumerism.
