How do you teach Climate Justice?
The Zinn Education Project Teach Climate Justice campaign offers free lessons and a timeline 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.
Thanks to donation by an author and a publisher, we will send you a copy of Paradise on Fire by Jewell Parker Rhodes or The World We Need: Stories and Lessons from America’s Unsung Environmental Movement by Audrea Lim in appreciation for your teaching story.
Describe how you used one or more of our lessons or the climate crisis timeline to teach about climate change, environmental activism, and issues related to land rights to participate in the book giveaway.
