Compass Lesson Plans

Educator-sourced lesson plans for sustainability in education

To become a Compass Practitioner (Level 1 certified), educators who have been through one of our Level 1 courses must create and implement a lesson plan for using systems thinking tools in their context. These lesson plans range in scope. Some educators focus on units or lessons, and some even focus on their broader school programs. Each lesson plan reflects and demonstrates how the Compass Tools enhanced students learning.
