MS Global Issues Students Tackle Waste

Another little Eco-School related curricular link, albeit 'left over' from last year's theme of waste. The video below was the result of a challenge-based project that was given the MS Global Issues classes. One pair decided to focus their topic on waste on campus and, in particular, what kinds of trash that is thrown in the general waste that could be thrown in the recycling bins. It provided classmates with a moment to inspect their own behaviors and to recognize the value of making small efforts (in this case perhaps walking a bit further to place your disposables) in order to support the greater good. It's a great piece of evidence in how students are identifying issues, working to study them, and then sharing their findings with others around them.
