Teaching for Climate Change

 

This session will explore how we can teach for, not just about, climate change. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss how many current classroom practices are already helping to prepare students to navigate a world made precarious by climate change, and then explore two possible areas for additional focus - naturalization and new stories. There will be concrete curricular connections and suggested activities.
