Investigating Green: Creating Surveys to Answer Questions
Farenga, Stephen; Joyce, Beverly A.; Ness, Daniel
Science Scope, v33 n7 p12-16 Mar 2010
Being green means different things to different people. Some suggest that being green means saving energy, not wasting paper towels, going solar, harnessing wind, using less fertilizer, or buying products that are organically grown. Given that being green can mean a lot of things, what does "being green" or "going green" mean to both you and your students? To find out, we need to make informed decisions by collecting data. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to become familiar with some of the basic steps involved in designing a survey to identify people's attitudes, feelings, beliefs, or knowledge about environmental issues and being green.
