People's Curriculum for the Earth Book Party

in

Dear Portland Area Rethinking Schools friends,

The book that Lincoln teacher Tim Swinehart and I have been working on for sometime, A People's Curriculum for the Earth: Teaching Climate Change and the Environmental Crisis, was recently published by Rethinking Schools.

Please save the date for our book party: Friday March 13. It will be at the EcoTrust conference center, 4 to 6 pm. More details to come.

Take a look at the book here: www.rethinkingschools.org/earth. We're thrilled that it is out, and would love your help in publicizing it. We'll have copies at the book party, of course, but feel free to order it before then!

A People's Curriculum for the Earth includes contributions from a number of Portland teachers: Linda Christensen, Julie Treick O'Neill, Brady Bennon, Mark Hansen, Amy Lindahl, and Chris Buehler -- as well as activists like Bill McKibben, Winona La Duke, Sandra Steingraber, Van Jones, and many more.

Thanks for your important work and for your support of Rethinking Schools.

Warmly, Bill Bigelow
