Currently the U.S. EPA is supporting the development of "bridges" between pre-service education programs and school districts. In partnership with three communities: Portland, ME (KIDS Consortium, University of Southern Maine and the Portland Public Schools); Scranton, PA (University of Scranton, and the Scranton School District); and, Tampa, FL (University of South Florida, and the Hillsborough County Schools) Earth Force is developing a model to mentor pre-service educators as they move being students to being teachers. Through this program we will design models that help novice educators incorporate higher order learning strategies into their classrooms, increasing access to educational strategies that build 21st Century skills.
