The goal of this project is to read a recent book on the environment and sustainability and/or other topics we cover in ES2 in groups of 2-4 and share what you have learned with the class. You will select and read a relevant book and then give a presentation about your selected book. This should be relaxed and low key – we (the class) want to learn from you. This assignment is worth 20% of your final grade and will be broken down as follows • 10% Book research portion of the project: information and facts relating to your book • 15% Concept map, readable with large font (please use in your presentation!) • 10% A ~1-paragraph oral summary on “additional facts” and “relating” your information • 5% Submitting the concept map; following directions • 60% 5-minute (per person) power point oral presentation (speak loudly please!) Explore, discuss, and analyze one or more of the following issues in your presentation: 1. The relationship between resource depletion and the changing role of humans in society, i.e., rural versus urban or the correlation between lifestyle and impact on natural resources. 2. Human land-use ethics – worldwide or parts of the world, western versus non-western. 3. Sustainable worldviews (ethics), past and present, worldwide or in some parts of the world. For example, past versus present; differences among cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic groups related to the sustainable use of natural resources; analyze reasons associated with different perspectives. 4. Possible solutions and sustainable approaches occurring worldwide. For example, solutions to degrading earth’s natural systems; compare and contrast various sustainable approaches. Your presentation should include: A critical review of your selected book and how it addresses one of the issues above; What is the book’s impact on you personally? And why is that book important today?
