Excerpt from ECOLITERATE: Taking a Power Trip

This excerpt from our book "Ecoliterate: How Educators Are Cultivating Emotional, Social, and Ecological Intelligence" tells the story of a field trip organized by a Spartanburg, South Carolina teacher to bring home to students the connection between their use of electricity and the impact of mountaintop removal coal mining on distant human communities and the natural environment. The story demonstrates how the practices identified in Ecoliterate - above all, "making the invisible visible" - can be applied to create powerful learning experiences.
