What does clothing communicate?
Webinar looking at clothing, community, and self-expression. From sorority colors to religious garb to everyday clothes, our dress and style is a representation of our community, our values, and ourselves. Clothing is often used to show faith, to mark a rite of passage, or to indicate inclusion in a group. Drawing on her research into African American communities in seven cities, Diana N’Diaye asks: “How do we define and express our community through the clothing we wear?”

What's Your Problem? A Look at the Environment in Your Own Backyard
Lesson plans in which students take on an environmental project. They begin by interviewing people who live in their town or neighborhood. They ask about the state of the local environment—and how it has changed over the years—before deciding on a problem to tackle. The ideas are based on a project in which a second-grade students in Colorado addressed the problem of deer overpopulation in their town.
