POLI373: Environmental Ethics Class Activity - Information

Sample Assignment


In this assignment students were asked to work collaboratively to propose possible political strategies addressing the ethical challenges or opportunities associated with climate change. In preparation for this assignment the instructor wrote a case study. Students were asked to create "Student Action Plans" by looking at the issue from a variety of perspectives that took a number of political factors into consideration. The instructor devoted one tutorial and one lecture in total, with the remainder of the work done outside of class. Students were given one wee to complete this assignment and were given choice in their final submissions (analytical paper or an analytical/reflective paper). To keep the information on the Wiki current, the instructor may choose to have future students update/respond to the existing proposals. A laptop/computer and internet access is required for the completion of this project.
