Ishmael for IB Environmental Systems & Societies Class
My students need an individual copy of the book Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. We are studying environmental ethics and the impact we all have on our environment. The book will be used in in socratic seminars.
My students are located in one of the "Big 5" districts in New York state. We are low income district, but the students are able to push through and find success in spite of it. This class is composed of juniors who are entering in the International Baccalaureate program.
My students are taking a college level environmental science class and pushing for success.They are hoping for additional resources that they can not provide in order to further their success in this challenging classes
The books supplied by this project will be used for a cross curricular activity in my IB Environmental Systems and Societies class. This project will supply a book to each student in order to read at home and discuss at school in socratic seminars.
We will discuss not only our effect on the environment, but also economics, anthropology, psychology and ethics.
We discuss our own environmental value systems as well as the "leavers and takers" discussed in the book. The students are able to connect to the book and it's relatable writing style. They are able to connect with the book no matter their race, cultural, gender or economic background.
