Beveridge & Diamond

Environmental Education Materials

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. (“B&D”) has taught a 7-8 week environmental course to sixth graders at Birney Elementary School, which, in 2009, was consolidated into Savoy Elementary School, in Washington, D.C. for several years.  B&D initially created the course as part of its commitment to the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs’ partnership with underserved inner-city schools.

B&D has now tailored these materials for the American Bar Association (“ABA”). Working with the ABA’s Air Quality Committee, the packet of materials has been organized so that any law firm, governmental entity or nonprofit organization can teach the course (or parts of it) to elementary school students.

The following materials are available in pdf format. Click on any bullet point item to view the document. For ease of reproduction, at the bottom of the page is a link to all the course materials as one document.
