Community Action in the Classroom
Experience Learning’s Appalachian Watershed and Stream Monitors (AWSM) program has partnered with Earth Force to bring teachers the AWSM Community Action in the Classroom project. This project will provide teachers the opportunity and resources to use their the skills to incorporate active civics, Next Generation Science Standards, STEM, and stewardship into their classrooms.
The AWSM Community Action project will provide support for a limited number of civic action projects to be implemented throughout the 2018-19 school year. Inquire today!
$375 stipends are awarded to participating teachers. Continuing education graduate credits are available through Marshall University for an additional cost.
The Process is a proven educational model that combines the best of civic engagement, environmental education, and project-based learning. It gives educators the means to facilitate students as they design and implement a project that explores the root causes of a problem, identify barriers to solving the problem, and develop a project that addresses the problem they have identiﬁed.
Follow-up classroom support will be provided to teachers as they work with students to develop and implement their unique action plan.
