Going to Green

A Standards-Based Environmental Education Curriculum for Schools, Colleges, and Communities

by Harry Wiland, Dale Bell

"Going to Green is unparalleled in its narrative inventiveness, compelling visual imagery, and intellectual rigor. While designed for high school students, it is also perfectly suited to introductory courses for community-based organizations."

Jennifer Wolch, Professor of Geography and Planning and Director of the Center for Sustainable Cities, University of Southern California

Winner of the Santa Monica Public Library's Green Prize for Sustainable Literature 2010!

This unique learning resource combines an integrated, detailed academic curriculum with service-based learning activities to educate, inspire, and empower citizen learners to build greener and healthier communities.

Tested in high schools, university extension classes, community colleges, and community organizations, this teacher-friendly curriculum is rated highly as a successful program for knowledge acquisition across disciplines. It meets NSTA and NCSS national standards for grades 9–12, and includes a wide variety of cross-curricular activities with focus on literature, math, and art.
