Groundswell provides immersive professional learning opportunity (PLO) experiences focused on teaching place-based education (PBE) practices. Learn more about the practice of place-based education on the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative PBE Webpage

Educators will be introduced to the 6 Place-Based Education Principles: 1) Scan the Community; 2) Choose an Issue; 3) Develop Partnerships; 4) Research Your Issue; 5) Complete an Action Project; 6) Share Results and Celebrate. Together with your peers, you will:

  • Discuss needs and issues within your community
  • Analyze potential student approaches to identifying the issues and working towards a solution
  • Discover different ways to conduct a community scan
  • Explore iterations of classroom set-up, management, and tactics for engaging in PBE within your local community
  • Meet local community partners and engage with their organizations
  • Learn how Groundswell can support you through stewardship action projects

These PLO events are open to any educators interested in learning more about Groundswell, those who are actively working on their student projects already, or those looking to learn more about researching environmental and community issues!

Additional details including total SCECH credits, how to RSVP, and other information will be provided closer to the date of the event.
