Going Green Is So Much Simpler Than Most People Think

by: Collin Rojas

An increasing number of people are now wanting to do their part to save the planet due to the worsening problems caused by global warming. Unfortunately, numerous people assume that going green is costly and time consuming. Read on to discover several immediate things you can do to get on on the path to living green.

Recycling is the top way to start. A lot of people continue to place glass and aluminum items in their normal garbage even though recycling is not that hard to do today. In the US, it's not hard to locate a trash service that offers glass and aluminum recycling choices. Many people still continue to discard these items even though recycling bins are not hard to find. It merely takes a few minutes to wash off the cans and bottles before placing them into the recycle bin.

Newspapers are another item that overburden our landfills. Virtually all people will merely take their daily paper and toss it in the garbage when they are done with it. But, there are many other uses that you can get out of your newsprint other than poring over it. Did you know that you can keep your windows clean using newspapers? If you're tired of seeing small white fragments and streaks on your windowpanes after you clean them with paper towels and cleaner, try to use old newspapers instead. Several community groups run regular paper drives. Merely compilepile all of your old newspapers, put them in a stack, and see if the paper drive organizers will come to your location and pick them up.

One more thing that could help you to start to live green is to begin walking a bit more. Lots of people routinely drive short distances merely to buy one thing at their local corner market. If you just walk to the store, not only could it take less time, because you won't have to locate a parking spot, but you will be saving money on gas and helping to save planet Earth by not burning those fuels.

If you wish to save even more on gas, take the chance to car pool when you can and only mow your lawn two times a month instead of weekly. A gorgeous lawn is good to have but skipping an additional week before you mow again shouldn't significantly affect it. Using a manual push mower like those more normally used many, many years ago will help to save the environment even more. Numerous hardware shops still carry this type of mower.

When people make up their mind to try green living, it's easy to make a few lifestyle modifications that will benefit our environment. Likewise, you can find lots of info all over the Internet on other ways to start living green, you only have to look for it.

1.0 THE BARRETT TAXONOMY The Barrett Taxonomy (Clymer, 1968), designed originally to assist classroom teachers in developing comprehension questions and / or test questions for reading, is especially useful for classroom questioning in other content areas as well. The first two categories, literal comprehension and reorganization, deal with the facts as presented orally or in the books the students have read, and thus result in closed questions that have a single correct response. A possible exception is Synthesizing if the combination of facts presented leads to a totally new idea. Under those conditions, the student has creatively added his or her uniqueness to the presented information. However, in classroom learning, synthesis is most often the putting together of facts toreach a generalization or concept or definition.The remaining categories will always involve the students ownbackground of experience. As a result, it is possible to have as many different, but correct, responses as there are students present, since each brings to school a different background of home, family, friends, and learnings. These categories therefore lead to the development of open-ended questions. Although the classroom teacher who focuses on these higher questions has to allow more time for the varied responses, the degree of learning that can be evaluated is at least as great, and often greater, since adequate response to questions at these levels must incorporate the information that could have been gathered by fact questions. Therefore, as much or more can be gained for teacher and for students from a lesson with only a few higher level questions and the varied responses, since all the facts are checked while the students get practice in using higher cognitive thinking processes.

Literal Comprehension Literal comprehension focuses on ideas and information which are explicitly stated in the selection. Purposes for reading and teachers questions designed to elicit responses at this level may range from simple to complex. A simple task in literal comprehension may be the recognition or recall of a single fact or incident. A more complex task might be the recognition or recall or a series of facts or the sequencing of incidents in a reading selection. (Or these tasks may be related to an exercise which may itself be considered as a reading selection .) Purposes and questions at this level may have the following characteristics.

Reorganization Reorganization requires the student to analyze, synthesize, and/ or organize ideas or information explicitly stated in the selection. To produce the desired thought product, the reader may utilize the statements of the author verbatim or he or she may paraphrase or translate the authors statements.

Inferential Comprehension Inferential comprehension is demonstrated by the student when he or she uses the ideas and information explicitly stated in the selection, his or her intuition, and his or her personal experience as a basis for conjectures and hypotheses. Inferences drawn by the student may be either convergent or divergent in nature and the student may be asked to verbalize the rationale underlying his or her inferences. In general, then, inferential comprehension is stimulated by

purposes for reading and teachers questions which demand thinking and imagination that go beyond the printed page. (Personal experience is interpreted to include formal learning experiences, as well as those things which the reader has personally experienced in a first hand situation. Prior knowledge, regardless of where this knowledge came from, is an integral part of inference. The crucial factor distinguishing inference questions from recognition and recall questions is that their answers are not explicitly stated but must be inferred.)

Appreciation Appreciation involves all the previously cited cognitive dimensions of reading, for it deals with the psychological and aesthetic impact of the selection on the reader. Appreciation calls for the student to be emotionally and aesthetically sensitive to the work and to have a reaction to the worth of its psychological and artistic elements. Appreciation includes both the knowledge of and the emotional response to literary techniques, forms, styles, and structures.
