Description:

Competency Area: Educational and Social Policy
Required of and restricted to students in the Educating for Sustainability 2012 Cluster through December 15; open to all students on December 16. On-line course.

The essence of educating for sustainability (EFS) is the integration of environment, economy, and equity (the three E’s) across the curriculum. In order to be effective, EFS curricula must integrate the three E’s so that they are in balance. This course will ask participants to draw on their own experiences to consider how these three have been integrated in the past and how we may integrate them in the future. We will review curriculum models which integrate the three E’s, collaborate to create integrated curricula, and develop curriculum materials for our own classrooms which integrate the three E’s in developmentally appropriate ways.
