Five beautiful student books reflect the learning of long term projects at one public charter school and one independent school. Supplementary materials include teacher interviews, curriculum maps, sustainability education resources, recommended reading and materials.
“I have a sense of hope that many more schools will begin to educate students in ways that work best for children and that sustainability principles and concepts will be woven into our fabric of life, into our school’s curricula and become as natural as breathing. I like to think of Margaret Mead’s words, ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.’ You, me, the children involved this project [Collecting Nature’s Alphabet], all of us make up that small group of thoughtful, committed citizens. I believe that Margaret Mead is right, and that we can change the world.” –
