students will work with wetlands experts from
Environmental Concern and monitor the success
of their school yard wetlands project.
Overview of our
Green Woods' curriculum is designed, developed, and continually revised by our teachers, themselves. The foundation for curriculum development is based on the EIC Model researched by Dr. Gerald Lieberman and supported by a grant through Pew Charitable Trust. (www.seer.org). Our belief it that learning about the natural world, their place in it, and their responsibility to it is an engaging focus for study that captivates our students' interests in their surroundings. In addition to a strong content-driven curriculum, our students are given the opportunity to look critically at environmental issues and to take personal responsibility for finding solutions by asking the right questions. Green Woods provides ample opportunity for students to engage in experiential investigations with real questions and real answers.
Starting in Kindergarten, our students are immersed in environmental science content and use the study of the natural world as a focus for reading, writing, creative arts and more. Our youngest naturalists become actively engaged in environmental field studies where they apply what they learn in class to the real world around them. By the time our students have matriculated through our curriculum framework, they are well-prepared for understanding the environment, their place in it, and their responsibility to it. Our K-8 curriculum framework builds upon a strong content-driven foundation and focuses on providing an integrated approach to learning that is unlike any other K-8 school in our region.
Please take time to explore our many classrooms and learn why others have reached out from across the state and country wanting to replicate our program.
