Threshold is receiving great feedback from teachers for use in their classrooms to discuss climate change.
As a retired teacher, fully certified in Social Studies and Science ( Earth and Biology) I would have given anything to have THRESHOLD as a resource, in my classroom. Susan’s extensive knowledge and writing skill make this book readable, relevant and informative. If I should return to teaching, I will buy her book and lesson plans,(out of my own pocket if necessary) for the Social Studies or Science classroom. I have recommended this book to English teachers and Librarians.
Threshold is a novel about characters living in Tucson, Arizona “in the very near future.” Scientists, businessmen and women, government officials, and teenagers are experiencing the changes brought by increasing temperatures and water concerns. Teen characters are busy living their lives in very different circumstances. As the plot moves forward readers observe how each of them develops resilience to the changes as they affect their families and friends.
Teachers suggest that the descriptions of wildlife under pressure, the natural history of the Sonoran Desert, and the example of how one small city (South Tucson) engages youth in solutions offer relevant themes for their curriculum.
