Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

Regardless of what program of study you teach, regardless of what profession your students are going into, we all share planet earth as our home.  And what better time than this week to build earth awareness into our courses of study. 

Whether you connect green initiatives to an economics discussion, nature awareness to a literature assignment, conservation lobbying to a legal course, green health initiatives to a medical assisting class, or any other earth awareness course connection, I encourage you to take the opportunity this week to talk with your students about our individual roles and impact on the world we all share.

Here are a few links that might help get you thinking about this further:

Have a great week and let me know what you discuss in your classes!
