Environmentalist in Process
Reflection: During our first class session for “Environmental Law and Sustainability” each year, I ask my students, “Are you an environmentalist?” Each responds on a note card. Next, I ask each to define “environmentalist” on that card. We then discuss that response. At the end of the discussion, each student answers the questions on the back of the card, “Are you an environmentalist?” and “Have you changed your response as a result of our discussion? Why or why not?"
