CAPSTONE: Population and environment by design (1 of 2)

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 15 of 16

Objective: In this Capstone project, students will be able to: 1) collaborate with peers to develop a rigorous public presentation; 2) describe an area of interest where human population impacts the environment; 3) articulate the key features of the human population in the chosen area using data visualizations; 4) identify problems in an area caused by human population growth; 5) develop solutions to problems identified 6) identify the research necessary to better understand potential solutions; 7) publicly present to an audience; 8) provide rigorous feedback to presenting groups; 9) self-assess proficiency using rubrics and captured video; 10) and revise in-class presentations as standalone screencasts.

Big Idea: Human population growth impacts the environment . How might develop an engaging presentation about an area that elucidates the problems and potential solutions to problems posed by a constantly growing human population?
