  1. SustainabilitySuperheroes.orgUse Text Sets to Save the World “The door is more than it appears. It separates who you are from who you can be. You do not have to walk through it… You can run.” — Franklin Richards, The Fantastic Four COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, GUS A. STAVROS CENTER FOR FREE ENTERPRISE AND ECONOMIC EDUCATION #CokeGivesBack Sherry Moser and Deborah Kozdras

  2. Text Sets: What are they? • Text sets are collections of texts tightly focused on a specific topic. They may include varied genres (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and so forth) and media (such as blogs, maps, photographs, art, primary-source documents, and audio recordings). • https://edexcellence.net/articles/what-are-text-sets-and-why-use-them-in-the-classroom

  3. Text Sets: Why use them? • “Students who read the conceptually coherent texts demonstrated more knowledge of the concepts in their texts, more knowledge of the target words in their texts, and had better recall of the novel text compared to students who read unrelated texts. Findings suggest that there is potential for knowledge and vocabulary to be built during English language arts through a focus on conceptual coherence in the design of reading experiences for students.” • Conceptual Coherence, Comprehension, and Vocabulary Acquisition: A Knowledge Effect? Cervetti, Gina N.; Wright, Tanya S.; Hwang, HyeJin Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v29 n4 p761-779 Apr 2016

Definition of Sustainable Development In 1987, the UN Brundtland Commission defined sustainable development as: "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

  8. Solutions for Sustainable Development

  9. Sustainability Paradigm Ikerd, 2012: 5 Key Principles: Principle 1: All materials come from the environment Principle 2: Economic activity involves transforming natural materials Principle 3: The environment is the final “sink” into which all wastes go Principle 4: There is no “away” (wastes can change physical or chemical form, but do not leave the environment) Principle 5: The environment provides critical life-sustaining services

  10. Problem Solving and Decision Making What is happening? Make a choice among alternatives Find the root cause Anticipate future problems

  11. Potential Problem Analysis:

  12. Situation: The Bar-ba-loots are forced to leave town as there are no more Truffula fruits to eat. Problem Root Cause:

  13. Problem Point ___________ ___________ Good Good ___________ ___________ Bad Bad Choice Choice Decision Direction

  14. And the Humming Fish which cannot live in “gluppity glop” and “schloppity schlop” go in search of clean water. Problem Analysis: What is the root cause?

  15. Problem Point ___________ ___________ Good Good ___________ ___________ Bad Bad Choice Choice Decision Direction

  16. The Swomee Swans, with “smogulous smog” in their lungs, also fly for clearer skies. Problem Analysis: What is the root cause?

  17. Problem Point ___________ ___________ Good Good ___________ ___________ Bad Bad Choice Choice Decision Direction

  18. "But now," says the Once-ler, "Now that you're here, the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear. UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. "SO... Catch!" calls the Once-ler. He lets something fall. "It's a Truffula Seed. It's the last one of all! You're in charge of the last of the Truffula Seeds. And Truffula Trees are what everyone needs. Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air. Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back. What would a sustainability superhero do?
