Pop Quiz: Keeping Green in the Classroom

This is going to be a short pop quiz even though the subject is far from small.  

Being environmentally friendly is important nowadays. There are lots of people trying to create green living spaces and green cities by reducing waste and using products that do not crapify (technical term) our eco-system.  What about schools?  I am sure that a number of school systems try to educate their students on how to take care of the environment better but do the teachers and the schools practice what they preach?

Are you eco-sensitive in your classroom? Do you have any practices that you maintain to be green? Does your school have any practices they implement to help the environment?   Discuss amongst yourself.

The Pop Quiz is a question posed to you, the Scholars of Doubt. Look for it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the afternoon (ET).

    Almost all work in my class is done online and I urge my students to not print something unless they really need a hard copy. When I make copies of things, I always do double sided with small margins, etc. we have a campus wide recycling program, there’s an annual Earth Day event, and the school’s policies do always try to remember to be green. We still produce way too much paper waste but at least we’re trying!
