Tools for Teaching Green

A Guide for 21st Century Schools

Construction on this new school is long since complete, but its environmental message is intended to be ongoing. Having designed the first school in the world to be certified Platinum under LEED for Schools v2009, we were asked to provide graphics for the many eco-friendly concepts demonstrated by that design. The result is a guide filled with “Tools for Teaching Green”; a primer intended to remind students – as well as their teachers and parents – what is so environmentally special about the school they attend. Not content to have this message limited to a written guide, school administrators had us create a series of posters to be displayed throughout the campus, as constant reminders to everyone that this is a place where education about the environment is as important as reading, writing and arithmetic.
