Book Display: Teaching About Species, starting 4/15

Everett Cafe

Is it true that we care mostly about giant, often tropical or subtropical animals when thinking about endangered species and conservation? There's the Amur Leopard, Black Rhino, Hawksbill Turtle, South China Tiger, Sumatran Elephant .... but what about the smaller fauna and flora -- the honeybee, American burying beetle, Louisiana quillwort, Georgia aster ... that are also disappearing from our landscape? 

In support of this year’s Earth Day, whose theme is "Protect Our Species", we present Teaching About Species to nurture deeper educational awareness and human sensitivities to the whole world around us. Included are works that probe the meaning and debate over species, extinction, and the anthropocene through research, narrative, and lessons from Nature.

Read the Learning at the Library blog and Edlab blog.

At the Everett News Cafe, you'll find a new book collection every few weeks that relates to current affairs, education, or learning environments.
