Green Schools Globally

by Annette Gough, Green Schools Globally Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Green Schools Globally books, This book brings together stories of the green schools movement ((Eco Schools, Enviroschools, Green Schools, Sustainable Schools, ResourceSmart Schools etc) in several countries around the world, with a focus on the impact of the movement on the development and implementation of education for sustainable development in each of the countries. In particular, each story will explain the history of the movement per country, its current status, achievements, obstacles and broader impact. There have been a number of evaluations of these school movements at a national or more local level, and numerous articles and chapters have been published on aspects of these schools’ activities, but to date these have not been brought together in a single volume that focuses attention on the impact of the movement on education for sustainable development in each country. This is the purpose of this volume. The green schools movement focuses on a whole school approach which aims to include everyone (students, teachers and the local community), to improve school environments, including resource usage and the environmental footprint of the school, to motivate students to take on environmental problems and seek resolutions particularly at a local level but also thinking globally, and to improve students' attitudes and behaviours as part of developing a sustainable mind set.

100 Green Schooling Ideas

by Dr. Dheeraj Mehrotra, 100 Green Schooling Ideas Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download 100 Green Schooling Ideas books, Schools are required to showcase an awareness of the Green Initiative to make a sustainable future for our generations to come. Environmental sustainability doesn’t mean living without luxuries but rather being aware of your resource consumption and reducing unnecessary waste. Hence, the priority towards initiating some Green Schooling Projects is a common practice. A green school is a school that creates a healthy environment conducive to learning while saving energy, environmental resources and money. Green schools significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs, improve student and teacher health and enhance student motivation. The book 100 Green Schooling Ideas is a module, which reserves the spectrum for all quality schools to practice and implement the environment that is conducive to learning at large through Green Initiatives. This shall prove as a ready reckoner for teachers, parents and students at large and will further help and inspire the student fraternity of all age groups to explore the Go Green practices, making a delight and quality a way of life.

The Power Of A Plant

by Stephen Ritz, The Power Of A Plant Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Power Of A Plant books, In The Power of a Plant, globally acclaimed teacher and self-proclaimed CEO (Chief Eternal Optimist) Stephen Ritz shows you how, in one of the nation’s poorest communities, his students thrive in school and in life by growing, cooking, eating, and sharing the bounty of their green classroom. What if we taught students that they have as much potential as a seed? That in the right conditions, they can grow into something great? These are the questions that Stephen Ritz―who became a teacher more than 30 years ago―sought to answer in 2004 in a South Bronx high school plagued by rampant crime and a dismal graduation rate. After what can only be defined as a cosmic experience when a flower broke up a fight in his classroom, he saw a way to start tackling his school’s problems: plants. He flipped his curriculum to integrate gardening as an entry point for all learning and inadvertently created an international phenomenon. As Ritz likes to say, “Fifty thousand pounds of vegetables later, my favorite crop is organically grown citizens who are growing and eating themselves into good health and amazing opportunities.” The Power of a Plant tells the story of a green teacher from the Bronx who let one idea germinate into a movement and changed his students’ lives by learning alongside them. Since greening his curriculum, Ritz has seen near-perfect attendance and graduation rates, dramatically increased passing rates on state exams, and behavioral incidents slashed in half. In the poorest congressional district in America, he has helped create 2,200 local jobs and built farms and gardens while changing landscapes and mindsets for residents, students, and colleagues. Along the way, Ritz lost more than 100 pounds by eating the food that he and his students grow in school. The Power of a Plant is his story of hope, resilience, regeneration, and optimism.
