Activity

Understanding and Analyzing an Environmental Controversy part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM/FaCE:Projects:Integrating Sustainability into the Undergraduate Curriculum:Activities
In an ideal world, once an unsustainable practice is recognized, a more sustainable solution would be implemented. Unfortunately, most solutions and policies are not so easily implemented. By asking students to investigate and analyze a controversy related to environmental sustainability, this assignment will help students understand the complexities involved in implementing solutions that may, to them, seem self-evidently necessary. Students also will learn how participants in such debates attempt to convince others of their positions, goals, values, etc.
