Teaching Environmental Literacy Across Campus and Across the Curriculum

by Heather L. Reynolds

Part of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Series

Teaching Environmental Literacy Across Campus and Across the Curriculum Synopsis

To prepare today's students to meet growing global environmental challenges, colleges and universities must make environmental literacy a core learning goal for all students, in all disciplines. But what should an environmentally literate citizen know? What teaching and learning strategies are most effective in helping students think critically about human-environment interactions and sustainability, and integrate what they have learned in diverse settings? Educators from the natural and social sciences and the humanities discuss the critical content, skills, and affective qualities essential to environmental literacy. This volume is an invaluable resource for developing integrated, campus-wide programs to prepare students to think critically about, and to work to create, a sustainable society.

Teaching Environmental Literacy Across Campus and Across the Curriculum Press Reviews

What makes Teaching Environmental Literacy noteworthy is its coherence and accessibility. . . . Providing useful overviews of topics such as ecosystem services, population, and sense of place, the authors focus on specific disciplines as well as cross-disciplinary topics. While not designed as a how-to guide, Teaching EnvironmentalLiteracy would serve well any institution seeking to implement revisions to the curriculum-or individuals looking to create or revise courses that foreground environmental literacy.T * Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment * Anyone reading this book will walk away with ideas for how to address the most critical issue of the 21st century in his or her classroom. For that reason, I recommend this book for a much larger audience than college and university faculty. Even educators who work with our youngest children will find fodder in this book for self-reflection about what, why, and how to teach. I recommend it for teachers of all stripes who work to promote a sustainable future for our children.July 2011 * National Science Teachers Association * ...Teaching Environmental Literacy would serve well any institution seeking to implement revisions to the curriculum- or individuals looking to create or revise courses that foreground environmental literacy.

A particularly detailed and effective index is provided, as is an appendix. The volume is both inspirational and functional.
