Picture THIS: Taking Human Impact Seriously
Patrick, Patricia; Patrick, Tammy
Science Scope, v33 n7 p28-34 Mar 2010
Unfortunately, middle school students often view human impact as an abstract idea over which they have no control and do not see themselves as contributing to the Earth's environmental decline. How better to uncover students' ideas concerning human impact in their local community than to have them take photographs. With this objective in mind, the authors developed a program called Picture THIS: Taking Human Impact Seriously, which asks middle school students to take photographs documenting human impact. (Contains 4 figures and 3 resources.)
