Review for Creative Change Educational Solutions, Inc., Ypsilanti, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Creative Change offers a unique kind of curriculum to schools and teachers. Their lessons teach students to think about the big picture, to apply concepts and skills learned to real-life situations, and to engage in issues of sustainability in a very real and immediate way. My students understood the concepts introduced in the food systems unit and have continued asking questions about where their food comes from and how that affects people and the environment. I would love to see this incredible organization get more funding so they can write more curriculum and continue to train teachers.
