Sustainability offers a distinct, and valuable integrating approach to core K-12 and high education subjects including, science, social studies, ELA and math. By interweaving sustainability concepts into fundamental subject matter, students often connect on a more personal, and powerful level. When this happens, content recall is significantly greater – you remember what is real to you.
With this in mind, the Institute has developed a series of sustainability courses, including Sustainability for Earth, Life and Physical Science for middle grades and high schools. The courses provide a full table of contents linking state and national standards for earth, life and physical science topics to related sustainably concepts and resources. They are delivered in a convenient e-Text format, as well as open sourced online course platform.
