National Geographic (Chrissy)

Anyone else love National Geographic magazine like I do? Between beautiful photographs, thought provoking graphics, and stories that grab readers attention, I have always been inspired and educated by the stories they share. In their own words, National Geographic Society “pushes the boundaries of exploration, furthering understanding of our world and empowering us all to generate solutions for a healthy, more sustainable future for generations to come. Our ultimate vision: a planet in balance.” Let’s explore together!

Each week for homework, you will choose an article (length/challenge will be based on where you are at). The writing in Nat Geo isn’t necessarily easy-peasy so you have to be willing to dig in and/or ask for help (perhaps if you are like me, you enjoy being read to – ask a friend or family member to read out loud to you!) You will have a short worksheet to fill out  after you have read the article. In class, you will then share out to your peers what the article was about. If that makes you nervous, we will work together on speaking/presenting skills.

Required texts/materials: The instructor will procure the texts/materials.
