You Should Be Teaching Climate Change in Your Social Studies Classroom

Molly Sinnott, Teacher

Climate change is THE problem of our students' generation, and they are ready and waiting for the information and tools to take it on. But climate change is not just a science issue, it's a policy, social, and economic challenge as well. The solutions needed to take on climate change combine exactly the kind of civic engagement, career development, and governmental understanding that social studies brings to young people. You can use your expertise as a social studies teacher to equip students with the information necessary to take meaningful action.
