我一向说二代参与社会,要从小入手,从小事入手,慢慢锻炼。今天不说多了,我们看看Austin昨晚在镇上Board of Education推动环保教育的视频吧。 发视频是鼓励我们多在英文圈讲话。


前些天提到郝思嘉的gumption,我们和二代有吗?Austin四年级时对历史老师讲中国的coverage有不同意见,大胆站出来同老师讨论。我从10岁孩子那学到了什么是勇气,从此开始一系列参与社区的活动,事虽小,但这些不正是我们作为一份子推动美国社会的一步步吗?和二代共同成长意在于此。

什么是gumption
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gumption

Austin spoke at the BOE meeting on 5/27/2014, advocating more environmental coverage in the curriculum. Do we know how many gallons of water it takes to produce a t shirt? I didn't know. Austin's talk was a bit fast, but the 4Rs are Rethink, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Will share more of his research results later.

"I am aware that schools may have environmental clubs stressing recycling, but I am proposing a rethink, reduce, reuse, and recycle approach. I have done extensive research and can provide my resources to the teachers or environmental clubs and the board of Ed. This effort will be more effective if it comes from the board of Ed, which is why I am here today. ”
