Build and practice skills needed to understand complex environmental issues
The Environment and You, 3rd Edition, by Norm Christensen, Lissa Leege, and new co-author Justin St. Juliana, gives today’s generation of students reason to be hopeful about environmental challenges. The authors draw on their pedagogical expertise and classroom experience to help students establish a reliable foundation in science.
The unbiased approach of the text equips students with important analytical and quantitative reasoning skills, including how to ask questions to seek information required to develop informed opinions. The authors strive to inspire students, by connecting the course to choices they can make as citizens and demonstrating the role science can play in influencing personal, community and global environmental issues.
With the 3rd Edition, new features include You Decide which presents complex environmental issues and invites students to take a position and consider the results of their position. New Misconceptions address common student misunderstandings related to matters of scientific fact and tackle them head on. The textbook is closely integrated with Mastering Environmental Science to support instructors and students with a wide variety of engaging assignments and activities.
