This spring, our Honors English class will be planting native plants at the College of DuPage through what started as an effort to combat the negative impacts of lawn care on the environment. How we got to this point involved a mixture of brainstorming, research, and the use of rhetoric. For our presentation at the HCIR Student Symposium, we want to explain how this process unraveled and why we thought it was highly effective in teaching us the main objectives of the class. Using a video format, we will cover the various projects we completed during the semester and how each component lead to us getting the opportunity to plant these native plants on our campus.
