Two secondary schools in Kent County, Michigan with training from Groundswell, a Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative Hub, will be recognized as âFORCESâ schools. The Groundswell FORCES program will provide professional development to one administrator and four teachers in each FORCES school to integrate Great Lakes Literacy principles into school-wide curriculum as an effort to create and sustain systemic curriculum changes. Additionally, each school will be assisted in implementing a school-wide, place-based service learning project developed by the students. Projects will serve as school-wide meaningful watershed educational experiences creating a culture of stewardship. These projects will engage a minimum of two school administrators, eight teachers, and 250 to 500 students.
