Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Episode Details:

This unique learning resource combines an integrated, detailed academic curriculum, service based learning activities, and a vibrant video series to educate, inspire, and empower learners to build greener, fairer, healthier communities.
Video segments show how 'regular' people and organizations in Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Los Angeles are, rather than waiting for government plans or policies, taking action now to recover their city's environment and experimenting with new, more sustainable ways of urban living.
Exercises, data and examples, profiles of good practice, discussion points, group activities, and extensions provide educators with a potent set of tools to empower learners to tackle challenges like land use, waste disposal, transportation, green building, loss of diversity, water use, and more.
Tested in high schools, university extension classes, community colleges, and community organizations, this teacher-friendly curriculum is rated a highly successful program for knowledge acquisition across disciplines, and knowledge creation and citizenship through active learning.
The program also meets NSTA and NCSS national standards for grades 9-12 and includes a wide variety of cross-curricular activities with a focus on literature, math and art.
