Part 2: Getting Started
Choosing a Project Introduction
The hardest part of any project can be deciding what to do. This section offers guidance in designing a plan for action.
Sometimes students have trouble deciding what to do because they want to accomplish everything and they want to do it all right away. When making a plan for environmental action, it is important to choose a project that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time and accomplished with the people and materials available. It is discouraging when, midway through, unanticipated difficulties arise and a project turns out to be too complex to finish. Thus, teachers may wish to make first projects small ones.
