Chapel Hill, NC- April 29, 2019: Stephanie Morgan, a math teacher at Pisgah High School in Haywood County, is one of 12 exceptional educators selected from applicants across the state of North Carolina to participate in a professional development and curriculum fellowship focused on using the Population Institute’s OVERBook. The OVERBook Project on the Environment and Sustainability is an interdisciplinary professional learning opportunity which aimed to deepen educators’ understanding of contemporary global environmental and sustainability issues and resources for teaching about these issues. Representing schools, districts and community colleges from North Carolina’s mountains to the sea, the Fellows engaged in interdisciplinary, professional, collaborative learning beginning in the summer of 2018 and culminating in the creation of comprehensive study guides with educator resources for integrating these photos and themes into a variety of disciplines across the K-12 and community college spectrum. The six themes included climate change, consumption, human rights, nature’s rights, pollution and water.

Stephanie’s culminating project included the creation of study guides and teaching resources focused on pollution and water. You can find Stephanie’s materials for Are People Dense? Density, Population and Possible Pollution Correlations here:  and her materials for Wet and Wild: The Calculus-Based Physics of Water Use here: To find out more about the OVERBook Project on the Environment and Sustainability, visit the Fellows program page at World View’s 2019-2020 Fellowship Program and applications will be announced in May 2019
