I would like YOU to PLAY AN ACTIVE ROLE in the research and elaboration of some of the topics regarding THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE PLANET EARTH. Thus, I would like to suggest four different options for you so that you can take part in the class preparation for this unit. Choose ONE of these four different PROJECTS, work on it and have it ready to bring it to class on WEDNESDAY 13TH OF MARCH FOR MY MONDAY/WED GROUPS or on THURSDAY 21ST FOR MY TUES/THURS GROUP, our last session before Easter Holidays.
1.- CHOOSE a HERO OF THE ENVIRONMENT from this list published by the Time. Read about this person and then do an Oral Presentation in class about him or her: What was this person's significance for the environment? Is he an activist, a scientist, an influential person? Tell us a bit about his or her work and the consequences for the conservation of the environment.
2.- CHOOSE a SUCCESS STORY of a Biodiversity Proyect. Read about it and come to class ready to share it with us. Where did this project take place? Who carried it out? How did it come about? Does it continue today? Why did you choose to tell us about this one in particular?
3.- CHOOSE AN ANIMAL from the ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST OR ANY OTHER ANIMAL THAT YOU LOVE. Prepare a PROFILE about it. Who is it and where does it live? Can you bring some photographs to class? or maybe prepare a short PowerPoint presentation about it. What is the life expentancy of the species? Is this species important for other animals or plants?
4.- WATCH AND LISTEN TO one TALK in Ted Talks that has to do with some environmental aspect. Summarise the main ideas for your fellow classmates and include your personal opinion about the talk and the thesis it supports.
PUBLISH A COMMENT IN OUR WIKI to let everyone know which CHOICE you have picked.
