Participate in a community investigation of natural and social environmental issues. Explore the concept of environmental literacy, build a solid understanding of the basics of environmental education, and be actively involved in a series of community investigations in human-built and natural locations around Minnesota's Twin Cities. Learn to focus through three "lenses": systems (knowledge of social and natural systems and their interaction); problem identification and solving (ethics typically are an issue in these situations); and move to action (defined as citizenship and stewardship). Examine and reflect on your environmental philosophies and behaviors. NOTE: This is a core course of the MAEd:NSEE.
