How do you teach Climate Justice?
The Zinn Education Project Teach Climate Justice campaign offers free lessons and teaching activities about climate change and what people can do about it. We want to hear from teachers who have used Zinn Education Project resources to teach about climate change in any subject.
In appreciation for your classroom story and (when possible) photos to illustrate it, we will send you three books: Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore by Elizabeth Rush, Iep Jāltok: Poems from a Marshallese Daughter by Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner, and Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines by Paul Fleischman.
Describe how you used one or more of our lessons to teach about climate change, environmental activism, and issues related to land rights to participate in the book giveaway. You may offer teaching stories about any of our Climate Justice lessons, including:
