Individual Reading and Preparation:

*You are going to present an argument in a small group. You will argue that the other students take certain actions as consumers to promote forest conservation. Consumer actions can include what you buy, how you use it and what you do with it when you are done using it. This will be based on your selected article. To prepare:

1. Read selected article

2. Use one piece of notebook paper to create a visual aid for your presentation:

Include the following:

a. Seven - ten consumer actions (buying, using and/or disposing of products)

Use your own words based on tips in reading. Organize actions into different sections (e.g. in reading B- home, school and holidays)

c. Two - three diagrams, pictures or graphics to illustrate key points

d. One - three statistics on the state of our forests or wood consumption to support your argument to change consumer actions.

**Be PREPARED to explain not just what actions but also WHY those actions.

Jigsaw Groups will listen to one another and carefully consider all the consumer options.

As presenter, you will:

a. introduce your areas/approach to wood/forest conservation

b. justify why these actions are important for forest conservation (try to show why these actions may be more important than other actions)

c. carefully explain recommended consumer actions referring to all parts of visual aid

As listener, you will:

a. ask questions to better understand presenters' ideas

b. after each presentation, write down 2 consumer actions you feel would be effective to conserve forests and would consider doing

c. after all presentations, choose 3 actions you feel would be most effective and write them down with an explanation as to why you feel these are the best actions to pursue as a consumer to promote forest conservation (1/2 page)

*Group Discussion:

Can you think of other approaches consumers can take to promote forest conservation?

What are the obstacles to changing consumer habits? using less wood?
