  • "A new integration of Goleman's emotional, social, and ecological intelligenceThis book portrays inspiring educators, activists, and students who embody a new integration of emotional, social, and ecological intelligence--or what the authors refer to as engaged ecoliteracy. It builds on the success of bestselling author Daniel Goleman's emotional and social learning, and shows how educators are extending the cultivation of these essential dimensions of human intelligence to include knowledge of and empathy for all living systems. With stories that range from the Arctic to Appalachia and New York to New Orleans it illustrates dynamic education and engagement about some of the most important ecological issues of the day, from oil and coal to food and water. It also features a comprehensive professional development guide and the five processes of engaged ecoliteracy. Daniel Goleman is author of several New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller titles: Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence, Primal Leadership, Vital Lies, and Ecological Intelligence Filled with illustrative examples of schools that have successfully created a "green culture" Includes a professional development guide to use in individual and group settings"--

A new integration of Goleman's emotional, social, and ecological intelligence

Hopeful, eloquent, and bold, Ecoliterate offers inspiring stories, practical guidance, and an exciting new model of education that builds - in vitally important ways - on the success of social and emotional learning by addressing today's most important ecological issues.

This book shares stories of pioneering educators, students, and activists engaged in issues related to food, water, oil, and coal in communities from the mountains of Appalachia to a small village in the Arctic; the deserts of New Mexico to the coast of New Orleans; and the streets of Oakland, California to the hills of South Carolina.

Ecoliterate marks a rich collaboration between Daniel Goleman and the Center for Ecoliteracy, an organization best known for its pioneering work with school gardens, school lunches, and integrating ecological principles and sustainability into school curricula. For nearly twenty years the Center has worked with schools and organizations in more than 400 communities across the United States and numerous other countries.

Ecoliterate also presents five core practices of emotionally and socially engaged ecoliteracy and a professional development guide.
