A Process to Start . . .

The Earth Force Process is a research-based model to implement Environmental Action Civics. It provides a framework for project-based teaching and learning that can be readily adapted to any age group or topic area, as well as to a range of timeframes for working with students. It is a series of six steps that, taken in sequence, guide you and your students to a civic action project that meets a real community environmental need, is of interest to them, aligns with your curricular goals, and is feasible to conduct.

. . . Support to Thrive

When you become an Earth Force educator, you become part of a lifelong community. Our unique professional development, ongoing virtual support, the Earth Force Resources website, and our partner network can help prepare and support you throughout the Process. Earth Force staff and partners are only an email or phone call away.
