1 Engage

This lesson should occur after you have covered the topic of environmental sustainability. It serves as the capstone of learning about the topic.

1. Show this brief review of sustainability to your learners.

2. Spend a few minutes reviewing key concepts/ideas about environmental sustainability with the class.

3. Ask learners how they might demonstrate their learning visually.

4. Teacher writes the ideas on the whiteboard.

Student Instructions

1. Learners watch the video shown by the teacher. 

2. Learners participate in class discussion about the video.

3. Learners share ideas as to how they might demonstrate their learning about the topic visually.

2 Explore

Have learners read through the information in the sustainability poster project site to gain background information and samples of e-Posters.

Student Instructions

Learners read through the information provided on the website.

3 Explain

Show examples of e-Sustainability Posters and emphasize that their creations must relay some aspect about environmental sustainability based on their learning and understanding about the subject.

A sample of a premier e-Sustainability Poster created by one of my learners may be viewed by clicking here.

Student Instructions

Learners look through the sample e-Sustainability Posters to gain some ideas as to what they might create.

4 Elaborate

Have learners use "Postermywall" online app to create their e-Sustainability posters. Though this app is fairly simple to use and most, if not all, of your learners will have no problems using the app, it would be a good idea to go through and create your own poster using this tool ahead of time to be able to answer any questions that learners might have.

Student Instructions

Learners design and create their e-Sustainability Posters using Postermywall.

5 Evaluate

Activity: Assessing

1. Have learners upload their e-Posters to a designated location. 

2. Have learners present their e-Posters to the class.

3. Assess learner's e-Posters. You may create your own rubric or use this simple one below:
