Proposal: Incorporating Sustainability Content into Special Topics: Media Constructions of Environmental Issues

Outcome:  Schiebe successfully incorporated sustainability content into a broader course on Media Construction of Environmental Issues that was taught in Fall 2010. The entire course led to increased awareness of both the students and the instructors concerning personal actions related to sustainability. The course also assisted in the development of a set of curriculum materials for an upcoming kit being produced by Project Look Sharp entitled Media Constructions of Sustainability: Food, Water and Agriculture AND created a set of sustainability-related media documents that will be made available to other Ithaca College faculty members interested in using them in their own courses.
