|Prerequisites||Teaching modality for prerequisites|
|Participants should have some familiarity with an applicant’s guide and call for projects they will have worked on in previous sections.||Self-study of the problem tree (pg X, Learning Manual)|
|Instructional activitiesThe 5 E plan||Description of the activity||Grouping Strategies||Needed technical tools and materials|
|ENGAGE||Brainstorming on an important ecological or social problem in the community: identifying the root causes for the problem, generating the problem tree||Class discussion||Jamboard or Board and sheets|
|EXPLORE||Describing the process of generating the solution tree starting from the problem tree||Group work|
|Jamboard or board and sheets on problem and solution trees|
|EXPLAIN||Starting from the most efficient solutions identified in the previous activity, students come up with three objectives. |
Based on a fillable worksheet, students generate SMART goals for each objective and a series of activities to achieve each goal.
|Group work||Jamboard or Board with sheets with the difference between objectives, goals and activities in a project, plus examples on how to phrase each.|
|ELABORATE||Breaking down activities, calendar and budget, by filling out logical matrix and the Gantt chart||Group work||Jamboard or Board and sheets|
|EVALUATE||Debriefing session in which everyone shares what they have learned through the use of key words.||Group work||Jamboard or Board with post-it|
