EnvLit - Home Page The goal of our project is to develop learning progressions leading toward environmental science literacy—the capacity to understand and participate in evidence-based discussions of socio-ecological systems and to make informed decisions about appropriate actions and policies—for students from upper elementary school through college. Our work is organized into four strands, each representing an important part of school science curricula and of environmental science literacy Carbon. This website includes three kinds of products from our work: Research reports and publications, that describe learning progression frameworks for each strand and analyses of data from assessments and teaching experiments.

Jonathan Klein: Photos that changed the world | TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript In my industry,we believe that images can change the world.Okay, we're naive, we're bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.The truth is that we know that theimages themselves don't change the world,but we're also aware that, since the beginning of photography,images have provoked reactions in people,and those reactions have caused change to happen. So let's begin with a group of images.I'd be extremely surprisedif you didn't recognize many or most of them.They're best described as iconic:so iconic, perhaps, they're cliches.In fact, they're so well-knownthat you might even recognize themin a slightly or somewhat different form. (Laughter) Well, I think what is far worseis man's destructive power over man.Samuel Pisar, an Auschwitz survivor, said,and I'll quote him,"The Holocaust teaches us that nature,even in its cruelest moments,is benign in comparison with man,when he loses his moral compass and his reason." And thank you to all the photographers. (Applause)
