Chalk Talk: Valuable Lessons about Green Teaching
Opportunities to make “green”, or environmentally aware, decisions are abundant. It is now clear that the Earth is a valuable asset to humans, and humans should be more conscious of how they use its resources. Today’s youth are much more green savvy than previous generations, as environmental conscientiousness is ingrained in their collective consciousness. Many schools are channeling this awareness through various initiatives designed to promote conservation. The most obvious method of conservation is to reuse and recycle old materials. Teachers can reuse paper by printing on both sides and providing students with scrap paper to do their class work. Recycling bins can be placed throughout the campus for all materials. Teachers can create projects for students to make items out of old materials. Other important lessons that schools can teach students are to turn off lights and other electronics when not needed, plant gardens, and harvest the crops for food.
