Teacher Candidates Research, Teach, and Learn in the Nation's First Net Zero School
Murley, Lisa D.; Gandy, S. Kay; Huss, Jeanine M.
Journal of Environmental Education, v48 n2 p121-129 2017
Teacher candidates conducted field hours in the nation's first net zero school, which uses the same amount of energy, measured annually, as it produces. These teacher candidates saw firsthand integration of the net zero advantages by completing a Collaborative Research Project and a Net Zero Lesson, which incorporated the use of the net zero building features as part of the lesson plan criteria. As a result, teacher candidates experienced how students can learn from their constructed environment and how that learning could contribute to a more sustainable world.
