1.) Find partner(s)
2.) You will do research about a "mover and shaker" for the environment as well as a term of the environmental movement. Be sure to ask others in the class so that no two groups investigate the same topic.
3.) You should find out things like: the person's "bio," what they did and their impact on the environmental movement (many did other things so make sure you focus on environmental aspects)
4.) You will be teaching a "lesson" to your peers so know your stuff!
5.) You should prepare a brief handout for your "students" and a concise presentation (presentations should be no longer than 7 minutes-all group members should participate and present)
