School!

I’ll be sharing some school assignments here from classes I take while at Drew University.

Spring 2021 Update:

Hello again! I am still adding to this site for school! In addition to last semester’s topics, I am now taking a course called Geographic Information Systems, where I’ll be sharing different data using maps I’m creating or manipulating in various GIS applications. I can’t wait to share what I’m learning with you.

Here’s a relevant 2021 meme to commemorate the occasion. #berniesmittens

Fall 2020:

In the Fall of 2020, the topics I’m sharing come from a course called Environment, Society, and Sustainability. We’re reading from several books this semester: A People’s Curriculum for the Earth by Bill Bigelow and Tim Swineheart; Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle Against Dupont by Robert Bilott; and Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

I may share thoughts on other readings from other courses this semester, since I’m also reading and learning from Bill McKibben’s The Global Warming Reader and Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. Since a lot of the subjects covered in my courses are interrelated this semester, my goal is to draw as many connections to other works as possible, as that’s a great way to seed knowledge.

This stack was heavy, but not nearly as heavy as the subject material will be.

Buckle up, we’re going on an adventure to (dare I say it?) change the world. 🙂
