Curriculum & Learning Guides

There’s a gap in our science curriculum. We are filling it, one age group at a time

Stay tuned for more resources to be added as we collaborate with teachers, instructional designers, and content experts to create them. All of our content is free for anyone to use.

High School Curriculum

Unit One of our forthcoming high school curriculum is currently in the pilot phase. Check back in May 2023 when the full online high school curriculum will be published. For now, learn more about this project through our one-pager.

Our curriculum development team includes:

  • Dr. Erica Dodds: Erica is Chief Operating Officer for the Foundation for Climate Restoration. She holds a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Evaluation and an M.A. in International Development Administration. She has been working in climate restoration since 2017, focused on building the public and political will for climate restoration through education and advocacy programs for all ages.
  • Hilda Berganza: Hilda joined the Foundation for Climate Restoration in November 2020 as the Youth Program Director where her focus is in empowering, teaching and leading youth from around the world as they complete the Youth Leaders for Climate Restoration (YL4CR) program. In YL4CR, participants learn about climate restoration, implement the knowledge learned in their local communities, and develop their skills in climate advocacy.
  • Maureen Charles: Maureen is a YA nonfiction author, holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. For 35 years she worked as an educator, program administrator, curriculum developer, and writer for various training and development organizations. She has been volunteering with the Foundation for Climate Restoration K-12 Curriculum Development Team since its inception in 2020 and was instrumental to the successful launch of F4CR’s web-based curriculum for grades 3-5.
  • Julie Humphrey: Julie holds a Masters degree in Bioengineering and is a credentialed teacher. She spent the first half of her career as an engineer at General Motors, the University of Michigan Computing Center, and Nicolet Biomedical. Most recently, she taught middle school science and served as department chair at Oakland School for the Arts, where she promoted awareness of climate change and the development of critical thinking skills to innovate possible solutions.

Elementary Education Resources

We started by creating educational resources for elementary students, the group that has the most at stake when it comes to climate change. Providing them with the education that prepares them to approach climate change with an action-oriented and hopeful perspective can shift the tides on climate action down the line.

For learners aged 8-12, check out our Climate Restoration for Kids digital lesson.
