School Library Connection - Global Citizens: Environmentalism
Each book in this series begins with the basic definition of environmentalism, which then leads into the particular topic of discussion within the field. While the series works through many known concepts, the author does bring forth additional topics the student may not have heard about. Each page of text is complemented by a crisp full-page color photograph with a caption at the bottom. The concepts are explained via easy-to-understand details and short sentences that do not overwhelm the reader. Included info boxes add in additional learning tasks such as “Developing Questions,” “Gathering and Evaluating Sources,” “Taking Informed Action,” and “Communicating Conclusions.” These additional boxes ask the student to research questions based on the text and to come to their own conclusions.
