Building Green Places: Careers in Planning, Designing, and Building

“Building Green Places looks at careers associated with designing and constructing green buildings. The editor notes that "It’s exciting to have plans and designs for the future. It’s also exciting to try new things. While you wait for school to be over, here are some fun projects to help you find what you enjoy doing and whet your appetite for your future career." The book includes six chapters, some activities students can try, a glossary,�additional information�to research, and an index. Each chapter examines interesting green careers and is illustrated by a diverse group of students working in green jobs. The chapters contain many sidebars. An example is�one about the change in the job of a roofer. In the future, working as roofer might include some gardening work, and the book portrays a green roofer planting seedlings for a new green roof. This attractive book is oriented to middle and high school students�thinking about what they might like to do as adults. There are lots of things these young people can do to benefit the environment in and around their community, and they should be encouraged to do them.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 12/09
