Environmental Stewardship

Courses:

Sponsored by TLC Education and Foundation Curriculum design modeled from Earth Force and Tamela Trussell. ALL Environmental Stewardship Courses will emphasize problem-solving & civic action. The course will follow the teaching philosophy and goals laid out below. TLC Education courses are designed to teach Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) through classroom and field investigation, research, problem-solving, debate, discourse, media, guest speakers, civic engagement, and environmental education. With educators’ facilitation, students will use their knowledge and resources to employ the Earth Force process to identify and research community environmental issues, resulting in a civic action project that addresses their selected issue. Youth will be asked to identify environmental issues, problems, or phenomena in their community through discovery. They will select, research, and define potential root causes. Through consensus and democracy, they will select one to address. Students will brainstorm and research ways of mitigating the problem through practice and/or policy. Students will identify stakeholders within their community to work with. Youth will implement, reflect, and celebrate a project to solve their chosen environmental issue, problem, or phenomena through civic engagement. This method of learning will ensure students learn, master STEAM concepts and become civic-minded by applying what is learned to problem-solving various issues found in their communities. Youth will engage in civic action by changing policies, practices, furthering research or public education. Learners develop agency and confidence to become active participants in their communities by developing and using their knowledge, gaining partnerships and making democratic decisions.

“Environmental damages were caused by individuals’ actions and it takes individuals' contributions to repair them. “ by Tamela Trussell However, it is going to take more than adjusting our personal living habits to slow and stop the big environmental issues we have created. We need to understand the importance of learning about policies and practices and learn how to change them.
