Teaching Climate Justice Through Interdisciplinary Learning
30 ISBE PD Hours and 2 CPS Lane Placement Credits
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 in-person 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. This is an extended offering of Teaching Climate Justice: From Action To Inquiry contains two additional session modules for the educator to devote the time necessary in fully developing and writing a climate justice lesson. This offering addresses the CPS Framework for Teaching Components: 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 3a, and 3c.
