In this course, educators will collaborate to learn ways they can teach the topic of climate change through student inquiry projects that connect to issues of racial justice, climate solutions, and civic action. All live online sessions and asynchronous activities focus on educators learning to engage students in climate change for all content and grade levels. Participants will learn strategies to develop and facilitate inquiry projects that lead students to research the impacts of climate change to create civic action by students toward the goal of mitigating climate change. Participants will also learn about a unique opportunity to apply for the Climate Justice Education Project grant. This offering addresses the CPS Framework for Teaching Components: 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 3a, and 3c.

 Participants will learn how to:

  • Engage students on climate change at many grade levels in a way that fosters student empowerment, hope, and advocacy.
  • Adapt and integrate climate change curriculum with other subjects.
  • Connect climate justice education to racial justice and their students' personal experiences.
