Environmental Science Lab 99

Rating
0.0 stars

The main goal of this Environmental Science 99 Laboratory course is for you to think about how we interact with the environment, our impacts and the results of these, not just in our immediate vicinity but globally. We will focus on three main topics; sustainability, pollution and climate change.

An additional goal is to gain knowledge of the fundamental scientific basis of major environmental issues facing society, including climate change, air, soil and water quality, food production for a growing population, sustainable energy resources and biodiversity. We also consider these problems in the context of the current social, economic, & political environment. In addition to discussing these environmental challenges, we will address potential solutions and management practices that have been or could be implemented to mitigate the negative impacts of the current environmental issues facing our neighborhoods, cities, countries and planet.

Food as Philosophy, System, Controversy
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Everyone eats. In this sense, the experience of food is common to us all. Yet the meanings we attach to food—as individuals with complex personal histories and needs, as members of particular cultures, communities, and belief systems—are remarkably diverse and powerful. In this course, we engage works by scholars, poets, and other writers to explore the significance of food as the source of inspiration and debate. This exploration will serve as a basis for our own writing. Our written responses will explore food as it relates to identity, social justice, and the environment—showing how far inquiry into one topic can stretch.

Course: ENG 110: Food as Philosophy, System, Controversy
Instructor: Nicole Cote
This project was first developed during the Open Pedagogy Fellowship (Winter 2021), through the Mina Rees Library at The Graduate Center.

Rating
0.0 stars

A collection of nine blog prompts developed for an introductory music course that incorporates world music, popular music, and Western art music through a topical (rather than chronological) organization. Each prompt asks students to synthesize course content or apply course concepts to music apart from their assigned listening. Full credit is earned if the student: writes around 200 words; uses musical and/or textual evidence to back up their observations; and leaves a substantive comment (2-3 sentences) on a classmate’s blog. These blog prompts reference passages and assigned listening from Cornelius and Natvig, Music: A Social Experience (2nd ed).

An icebreaker activity for the first day of class. Instructor introduces the idea of the “Three Bs” in classical music, before introducing the “Three Bs” of current popular music (this instructor chose Beyonce, Bad Bunny, and BTS). Students choose their favorite “B” and pair up with others who made the same choice. Other grouping prompts can easily be substituted here, like favorite genre of music. Students then take turns interviewing each other, asking two questions and summarizing their partner’s answers in writing. At the end, groups can share their answers with the clas and the instructor can type them out on the Powerpoint.

This assignment requires students to: choose a social topic (e.g. coming of age, feminism, holidays); write a topic proposal describing how their topic relates to music; choose six pieces of music from different genres; write short playlist entries that discuss the social and musical characteristics of each piece; and create a slide presentation summary. The document below includes handouts for each stage of the assignment.
