Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the United States, a movement of educators, parents, and students is remaking K-12 education to prepare students for the future environmental challenges. What would a green school or an eco-schooling curriculum look like? Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability offers firsthand accounts and strategies for greening campuses, rethinking school food, and transforming schools into model sustainable communities. Green and healthy campuses with rooftop gardens and innovative designs are serving as living laboratories in which educators teach energy conservation, resource management, and earth sciences. Smart by Nature documents this movement through inspiring success stories from public and independent schools across the country. Practical "what you can do" checklists and pages of resources make this a twenty-first-century guide for our educational future.

Synopsis:

An inspirational and practical exploration of bringing "eco consciousness" to K-12 education.

Smart by Nature shows how schools and districts across the country are orienting their activities around environmental responsibility and wisdom: in gardens and cafeterias, on campuses, with nature-based curriculums, and in the communities that surround their schools.

Synopsis:

"Smart by Nature offers hope by explaining what sustainable living really means and why young people with this knowledge will lead us to a safer, more prosperous future."--Kevin Coyle, Vice President, Education and Training for the National Wildlife Federation

"Schooling for sustainability, as described in Smart by Nature, has never been more important."--Daniel Goleman, author of Ecological Intelligence

"An inspired handbook that connects hands-on experiences of the garden, kitchen, table, compost heap, and classroom curriculum!" --Alice Waters, Chez Panisse Restaurant

"Smart by Nature is must reading for teachers, school administrators, parents, and the concerned public."--David W. Orr, author of Down to the Wire: Confronting Climate Collapse
