Essential Question:

Who is responsible for our planet’s climate crisis? Who’s responsible for fixing it? What can our school community do?

Unit Context:

Too often, learning around climate change is limited to a purely scientific lens. Climate change is a political, social, and economic issue. More importantly, it is a real and urgent existential threat to the globe. This unit is an opportunity for students to engage in an interdisciplinary approach to climate change with the purpose of feeling empowered to continue advocating for climate justice in their lives. Students will learn the scientific processes that drive climate change, and use their knowledge of this to think critically about who/what is contributing to the acceleration of climate change the most. Additionally, students will analyze data to think about how climate change impacts people disproportionately - and how these inequities are linked to racism and classism. The unit culminates in a final project in which students will apply their knowledge and thinking taking real-life climate action in their own community.
