From NPR, four out of five parents wish that teacher taught students about climate change:
“And that support crosses political divides, according to the results of an exclusive new NPR/Ipsos poll: Whether they have children or not, two-thirds of Republicans and 9 in 10 Democrats agree that the subject needs to be taught in school.
A separate poll of teachers found that they are even more supportive, in theory — 86% agree that climate change should be taught.”
Ms. Rita Ulrich, a Fulbright-Hays fellow, traveled to Bulgaria and Greece in 2017 to better understand the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe. She recently contributed her lessons – detailed text appropriate for the middle or high school classroom, complete with creative activities and guided reading questions. It’s everything you need to humanize this unfolding human tragedy for your students.
There are also plenty of free lessons featuring other nations currently in the news.
