Learning Green: Careers in Education

“...From an environmental education programs coordinator to zoo careers and alliances with rainforest groups, this is packed with intriguing discussions kids will find involving! —The Midwest Book Review, 04/11 “Learning Green looks at the careers associated with environmental education. The editor notes, "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�five chapters, 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. For example, one is�about the educational values of zoos, and�a member of�a zoo's educational team shows children items on a curiosity cart. The children get to examine items such as a snake skin, a turtle's shell, and an alligator's skull. This attractive book is oriented to middle school and high school students beginning to think 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 so.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 12/09
