Abstract

WPI's commitments to environmental initiatives and introducing project work in the first year justify the creation of a new Great Problems Seminar with an environmental focus. The overarching objective of this interdisciplinary course is to produce environmentally-literate students. This project provides the foundation for this new seminar, including an analysis of the components of environmental literacy, a recommended approach for the course, sample course materials, and an extensive bibliography of resources.
