Teaching Climate Change Essentials

The Teaching Climate Change Essentials professional development moves teachers through a scaffolded exploration of climate change and global warming. By the end of this course, teachers will be able to:
  • Explain the fundamentals of climate science literacy;
  • Analyze how climate change human impacts the planet and people, especially people in marginalized communities;
  • Design entry points to include these fundamentals in a variety of existing K-12 curricula;
  • Discover and adapt curricula and resources for use in classrooms; and
  • Compare and contrast climate change solutions that teachers and students might participate in personally, locally and globally.
Participation in the Teaching Climate Change Essentials course gives K-12 educators the competencies and confidence to teach climate change within their own local context as well as recognition through teacher professional development hours, Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Graduate Credit.
