The Sustainable Intelligence curriculum cultivates environmental literacy and encourages youth to become environmental stewards and thoughtful leaders within their communities.
Sustainable Intelligence lessons introduce students to challenges and opportunities surrounding seven distinct eco-themes and engage youth in developing real-world solutions in their communities through project-based activities, design labs, and campus eco-audits.
Available in both English and Spanish, lessons include comprehensive lesson plans that include step-by-step instructions, advance preparation and teaching tips, cross-disciplinary connections, assessment recommendations, cultural adaptation ideas, technology integration, opportunities for differentiation, and community connections and service ideas. Lessons also include a range of additional resources, such as presentations with corresponding teacher’s notes, student worksheets, and assessment checklists and rubrics.
Sustainable Intelligence lessons are aligned to the following standards:
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
Education for Sustainability (EfS)
