Ecological Footprint Teacher's Manual: Thinking Critically about Environmental Impacts throughout Hi
"Thinking Critically about Environmental Impacts throughout History" is a workshop developed for history and social studies teachers who want to incorporate the scientific and social aspects of using renewable resources into classroom teaching. Through the Ecological Footprint framework, educators learn how to help students understand cumulative environmental impacts. Redefining Progress developed the Ecological Footprint Teacher's Manual to make this curriculum available for self-paced training
Learning from a tree
Observation of a single tree throughout the year can be the starting point for explorations of nature, life science, and environmental science.
Jocassee Gorges: Temperate rain forests of the Blue Ridge
A Carolina Environmental Diversity Explorations "virtual field trip" that explores the geology and botanical diversity of the Jocassee Gorges region of North Carolina's mountains.

Lessons from Hurricane Katrina: Can We Save California's Delta?
Lessons from Hurricane Katrina: Can we save California's Delta? Raymond B. Seed, Professor of GeoEngineering, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering The catastrophic flooding of New Orleans during hurricane Katrina was the single most costly failure of an engineered system in history. It was also a social and cultural tragedy of unprecedented peacetime proportions for the United States. After the disaster, a team of leading experts from across the country examined the engineering and
Global Warming: A Time to Act (Cap & Trade Conference)
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein describes her legislative program to combat climate change and responds to questions. Senator Dianne Feinstein is introduced by Boalt Hall School of Law Dean Christopher Edley at the "Cap and Trade as a Tool for Climate Change Policy" conference. Leading practitioners and academic experts from the US, Europe, China and India debated key legal, economic, and technology issues associated with "cap and trade" as a policy tool for California, the US and the internation

Berkeley Writers at Work: Michael Pollan
Pollan reads from his work, is interviewed about his writing process, and answers questions from the audience. Michael Pollan is Knight Professor of Journalism at the Graduate School and director of the Knight Program in Science and Environmental Journalism. He is a contributing writer at the "New York Times Magazine", and the author of three books: "The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World"; "A Place of My Own"; and "Second Nature". For many years he served as Executive Editor of
The use case specification of actions in the goal oriented knowledge based learning environment
The proposed goal oriented knowledge acquisition and assessment are based on the flexible educational model and allows to implement an adaptive control of the enhanced learning process according to the requirements of student's knowledge level, his state of cognition and subject learning history. The enhanced learner knowledge model specifies how the cognition state of the user will be achieved step by step. The use case actions definition is a starting point of the specification that depends o
Italian Reading Comprehension 3
Journalistic passage dealing with the area of climate and the environment. Analyze the passage for its main points, discover some vocabulary associated with climate and environmental issues, and look for grammatical details.
Fighting Back! (Lesson)
This lesson describes the major components and functions of the immune system and the role of engineers in keeping the body healthy (e.g., vaccinations and antibiotics, among other things). This lesson also discusses how an astronaut's immune system is suppressed during spaceflight due to stress and other environmental factors.
Just Passing Through (Lesson)
This lesson helps students explore the functions of the kidney and its place in the urinary system. Students learn how engineers design instruments to help people when kidneys are not functioning properly or when environmental conditions change, such as kidney function in space.
Landfills: Building Them Better
Waste disposal has been an ongoing problem since medieval times. Environmental engineers are employed to develop technologies to dispose of the enormous amount of trash produced in the United States. In this lesson, students will learn about the three methods of waste disposal in use by modern communities. They will also investigate how engineers design sanitary landfills to prevent leachate from polluting the underlining groundwater.
Who's Down the Well?
Drinking water comes from many different sources, including surface water and groundwater. Environmental engineers analyze the physical properties of groundwater to predict how and where surface contaminants will travel. In this lesson, students will learn about several possible scenarios of contamination to drinking water. They will analyze the movement of example contaminants through groundwater such as environmental engineers must do (i.e., engineers identify and analyze existing contaminatio
This lesson will allow students to explore an important role of environmental engineers: cleaning the environment. Students will learn details about the Exxon Valdez oil spill, which was one of the most publicized and studied environmental tragedies in history. In the accompanying activity, they will try many "engineered" strategies to clean up their own manufactured oil spill and learn the difficulties of dealing with oil released into our waters.
