Remember, Redford Center Stories is not a stand-alone curriculum, rather it is a demonstration and celebration of student learning that occurs in an Earth Science, Environmental Science, Ecology, Economics or other middle school class that is already in place and touches upon the topics covered here.
We have compiled several of our favorite outside resources that pertain specifically to teaching the Contest theme. These materials can be accessed for background information for educators, and students can rely on these sources as credible and legitimate organizations and content to reference for their short films.
