Sarah Duffer: Implementing the Drawdown Curriculum in High School Environmental Science Classes

Bio: Sarah Duffer is a Nationally Board Certified 15 year Earth/Environmental Science teacher at Asheville High School in Asheville, North Carolina. She traveled with GoGlobalNC and NC educators in 2014 to Germany where they studied Germany's educational system and shift to renewable energy. After returning from Germany, she led her students to win the high school division for the inaugural Solar Schools Challenge. Duffer has completed UNC's Institute for the Environment's Climate Change Fellowship and is presently an Energy Literacy Fellow. Last spring her students won the inaugural Drawdown EcoChallenge which was an international competition rooted in Drawdown's solutions to reverse climate change. She can be found in Asheville hiking, biking, gardening, reading, and enjoying teaching all levels of high school students.

Abstract: Learn about how an Earth/Environmental Science teacher has integrated the solutions presented in Drawdown: the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming into her 9th grade (standard and honors levels) and AP Environmental Science courses and how the school won the international Drawdown EcoChallenge.
