Tennyson Students Use Media in Waste Reduction Service Learning

Tennyson High School, a member of the Service-Learning Waste Reduction Project, engaged students in a variety of media projects as part of the school’s campaign to reduce waste on campus.


A student produced video, “How My School Garden Helps Me Grow” won an honorable mention in a school garden video contest.  The video shows the composting process at the school’s one acre garden and talks about how students use the garden to grow food for a local shelter.


The school used an innovative approach to reflection in the schools media academy.  Students learned blogging techniques while reflecting on what they learned about organizing recycling on campus.  The students  also tracked and monitored the school’s progress in waste reduction through the blogs.  Click the links below to read student blogs:
