Readings / Discussion Materials for May 2, 2012
For class next week (5/2) we will continue the discussion we started at the last Forum about making SRJC more sustainable. I will bring the ideas that you shared and we can add to them.
We’ll also talk a bit about the final presentation on 5/9 about environmental careers. To prepare for that, please come to class with questions about careers that you would like more information about. If there is a specific career or field you are that you are interested in, please let me know so that I can specifically address it in my presentation.
To Turn in: Nothing specific to turn in. However if there is a field that you would like me to address in my presentation, please let me know. I’d like to tailor the presentation to what members of the class are interested in.
