Re-Imagining Our Identity Through a Sustainability Class

By MARGARET PERROW, with RYAN KINGsustainability
“This is my job,” he says. “I team with students to compress global issues down to their local relevance. I guide instruction by intuition rather than institution. The students inform me. I am constantly asking: What do you want to learn about this issue?  How can we work together to envision solutions and imagine possibilities? Will we be active participants or passive bystanders in our community, our environment? And I’m constantly amazed at what can happen when I get out of the way and let students take charge of their own learning.”
