Ecoliterate : how educators are cultivating emotional, social, and ecological intelligence

Daniel Goleman, Lisa Bennett, Zenobia Barlow ; with professional development by Carolie Sly

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