RESOURCES FOR EDUCATORS

Roots & Shoots provides educators with real tools that develop 
students' 21st century learning skills, such as critical thinking, problem solving,
and a spirit of collaboration. Most importantly, it results in a sense of compassion
and commitment to their communities and the world around them.

"All too often we use the curriculum to design our
programs, while [Roots & Shoots] is opening my eyes that
the start begins with the students and what they see. The
curriculum is then tied into the service learning project,
and because the students started and researched the ideas,
they are already engaged and will stay engaged!"
