The Learning Community Coordinating Team (LCCT) is sponsoring a campuswide Integrated Learning Project for Spring 2010 which will focus on environmental and sustainability issues. The LCCT has partnered with the Greening the Campus Committee and the Common Read Committee to provide curriculum support and activities designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Earth Day movement.
The environmental theme of the project is "Six Degrees of Separation: Examining Your Environmental Footprint." We have put together a variety of resources which include lesson plan ideas that are available on Blackboard. In addition to the One Book One Triton book selection for Spring 2010, You are Here, the LCCT will also feature campus screenings of the feature film, Earth Days (view online).
One Book One Triton: You are Here: Exposing the Vital Link Between What We Do What it Does to Our Planet By: Thomas M. Kostigen
In You Are Here, Thomas Kostigen, the New York Times bestselling co-author of The Green Book, takes us to the most extreme environmental areas on the planet to show how what we do from the comfort of our own home affects people, places and things everywhere. A timely, much-needed alarm that recalls Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth combined with a compelling travel narrative reminiscent of Anthony Bourdain with straight ahead Anderson Cooper-like reporting, You Are Here is "an intriguing and insightful account that deserves to be read by everyone" (Mark Plotkin, Time Magazine Hero for the Planet).
We can use your help! In order to make this a successful event we encourage you to get involved in many of the campus activities and discussions. Read the book "You Are Here". Watch the movies and review the resource page. Check the calendar for event and discussion dates and times. Get involved!
