The One Book, One College program at MVC was launched in 2006 to promote interdisciplinary conversations, community-building, and reading across the curriculum. In 2017, the One Book team partnered with First-Year Experience to expand the program's offerings and reach, including the addition of the Student Research Symposium.

The All We Can Save Project is on a mission to embed climate truth, courage, and just solutions in education — and to make it exceedingly easy to use the All We Can Save anthology within classrooms and beyond.
We’re so glad you’re here for the journey.

Other Resources for teaching All We Can Save:
Discussion questions for essays and poems
With the classroom in mind, our living question bank offers a rich variety of discussion questions, writing prompts, and activity ideas tailored to specific sections, essays, and poems in the anthology.
Assignments to use your voice
These assignments explore a core theme from All We Can Save: using your voice. They’re designed to build students’ skills in climate communication, specifically op-eds and TED-style talks.
Assignments to spark action
These assignments build on another core theme from All We Can Save: taking climate action. They’re designed to help students translate what they’re learning into accessible, meaningful action in widening circles of influence.
All We Can Save Circles discussion guides
All We Can Save Circles (our deep “book club” model) provide discussion guides for each section of the anthology. The full 10-session experience works well for the classroom, facilitated by an educator or by students themselves. You can also draw selectively on the “generous questions,” journal prompts, and supplementary read-watch-listen materials.
To navigate the content of All We Can Save with ease, these summaries offer a high-level overview of each essay, as well as brief author bios, key terms introduced, and additional leaders highlighted in the piece.
Additional read-watch-listen resources
If you’re looking to dig deeper into the work of contributors to the book, you can find a selection of resources at the bottom of each Circles session.
We’ve also curated a list of relevant TED talks that pair well with each section of All We Can Save (some featuring contributors to the anthology).
