Sustainability and Cultural Stories part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM/FaCE:Projects:Integrating Sustainability into the Undergraduate Curriculum:Activities
This activity is an essay (on an exam or as a paper) for a class that focuses on a diverse group of texts, such as a literature class or a text-based writing course. Students are asked to compare and contrast the sustainability of the cultural stories that underline two or more of the major texts read during the course. Ideally, the essay will be preceded by focused class discussion on elements of each cultural story as well as discussion of what makes a culture more or less sustainable.
