TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE
This presentation would be useful in a lecture discussing an individual's impact on the environment and how that impact can be reduced. There are some slides at the end that relate specificaly to Minnesota (because the Institute took place there), which may or may not be useful depending on your location. This could be tied into a discussion of personal instances where students have taken steps to reduce their own footprints.
Assessment is at the discretion of the educator.
