Teaching Climate Change to Adolescents: Reading, Writing, and Making a Difference
Listen to Larry Jacobs of Education Talk Radio interview the authors about the book.
Teaching Climate Change to Adolescents is THE essential resource for middle and high school English language arts teachers to help their students understand and address the urgent issues and challenges facing life on Earth today.
Classroom activities written and used by teachers show students posing questions, engaging in argumentative reading and writing and critical analysis, interpreting portrayals of climate change in literature and media, and adopting advocacy stances to promote change.
The book illustrates climate change fitting into existing courses using already available materials and gives teachers tools and teaching ideas to support building this into their own classrooms.
A variety of teacher and student voices makes for an appealing, fast-paced, and inspiring read. Visit the website for this book (http://climatechangeela.pbworks.com) for additional information and links.
