Toward Universal Climate Literacy with Children’s Literature and Media
In this three-day in person summer school, literacy educators Drs. Nick Kleese, Jana Lo Bello Miller, and Stephanie Rollag Yoon will help you bring climate literacy education into your classroom. Educators at all grade levels and all content areas are welcome.
You will learn why traditional climate change education (CCE), focused on scientific and environmental facts, is inadequate to address the social, racial, and political dimensions of climate change. You will explore climate literacy as a broader competence that focuses primarily on developing attitudes and values aligned with how we should live to respect our planetary home. You will come away with teaching materials for your specific classroom. Participants will receive free CEUs, a picturebook, resource kit, and more.
