Environmental Learning Program
Real Life Environmental Learning Applications
The Environmental Learning course begins by examining the basis of division and constraint evaluation. The focus clearly defines the roles and responsibilities of all participants by forming critical thinkers engaged through goal setting and follow through within gardening (planting, maintaining, and sustaining), and agricultural literacy. By promoting group and individualized learning strategies in an engaged and challenging environment, the Green Team Garden Based Environmental Learning course gives each student perspective of possibilities.
The course takes doubt, creates a motor, and then helps students redesign a direction for them to make stronger decisions on their own. Altogether, the course builds quality character and rebalances the imagination, creativity, critical thinking / problem solving, and team building. Feeling a stronger emotional attachment to self, participants are motivated to become better adjusted, less stressed, and smarter individuals with competency levels on the same playing field of understanding. Educating the socioemotional well-being of the student through a cognitive and somatic combination of activities, the curriculum brings an individual’s achievement zones within reach.
