Inspiring Students to Explore New Frontiers and Local Solutions
The Environment and You, Second Edition, by Norm Christensen and new co-author Lissa Leege, gives today's generation of students reason to be hopeful about environmental challenges by emphasizing problem solving and scalable solutions that inspire students to make more informed choices to support the well-being of humans and the planet.
The new edition has added New Frontiers discussions that emphasize the interaction between new scientific discoveries, ethics, and policy; and Where You Live activities that invite students to use primary data sources to explore environmental principles and issues in their local community. A new chapter organization also improves connections between chapters and integrates key concepts with relevant environmental issues.
The textbook is closely integrated with MasteringEnvironmentalScience to support you and your students using a wide variety of engaging assignments that incorporate videos, current events, and interactive activities.
