Cultural Literacy: Rachel Carson

As we begin to see the effects of global warming on our biosphere, it might be time to reacquaint ourselves, by way of this Cultural Literacy worksheet on Rachel Carson, with one of the founders of the environmental movement. This is a half-page worksheet with a reading of three sentences and three comprehension questions.

Incidentally, the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) at the United Nations reported this week that some changes to the earth’s climate are “irreversible.” But, as National Public Radio opined, there is still hope. For the sake of the students we presently teach, let’s, uh, hope so.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
