Tracks to the Future
INTERDISCIPLINARY – SERVICE LEARNING, ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS (ELA) CURRICULUM
USING WOLF EDUCATION TO PROMOTE COMMON CORE STANDARDS
“Interdisciplinary Curriculum in Wolf Education: Tracks to the Future” is a unique unit of study that affords elementary and middle school students differentiated opportunities to learn and master many of the required common core academic standards in Language Arts, Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies and the Arts while using wolf conservation as its integrating theme. Its goals are to encourage students to pose and answer relevant questions about wolf recovery and conservation while they simultaneously acquire new knowledge, tools, and the critical thinking skills that they will need as life-long learners, in general.
“Tracks to the Future” is an academically robust, relevant, and innovative “living curriculum.” It emphasizes cooperative learning, research and project-based learning, critical thinking and discussion, hands-on activities, and integrated service learning opportunities. Students develop and practice leadership skills by working in teams, listening to and accepting diverse opinions, solving problems, considering the long-term view, promoting actions that serve the greater good, and connecting with the community to make a difference.
