Community Inquiry into Quality Education
Ages: 4+
Use the Sustainability Compass to help take notes as you and your students walk around your school or community to observe things that impact how much they enjoy learning.
Think Systemically about Quality Education
Ages: 10+
Compass the topic of ‘SDG 4: Quality Education’ with your students to get them thinking systemically about factors that impact and are impacted by the quality of education in their lives. Create a Sustainability Compass and then challenge your students to identify some of the ‘leverage point’ factors that they think are most important and related to quality education.
Measuring Quality Education
Ages: 10+
Do the World Largest Lesson’s ‘Be-A-Fact-ivist’ Lesson and complement it with a systems brainstorming activity using the Sustainability Compass to consider what data we need to find from each Compass Point to reflect systematically on factors impacting quality education. For example, what data can we collect about nature that impacts our quality of education?
