It’s a very current issue, the one that will be dealt with in the new free course organised by School Education Gateway’s Teacher Academy. The protagonist of online activities, starting on Monday 27 April will be climate change, a phenomenon that from the scholastic point of view can offer teachers interesting inputs for the work with students, being potentially linked to all the curricular subjects.
The course, of which enrolment is already open, is going to outline in broad terms the basic concepts of climate crisis and is going to propose a series of didactical practices and projects, reproducible in class, taking into consideration the theme, not only from the scientific point of view, but also as far as ongoing debates are concerned, and the impact of the phenomenon on society, with the hope that increased awareness on the subject could lead students to put into practice new life styles.
“Addressing the Global Climate Crisis in Your Classroom”, this is the title of the course addressed to teachers of all disciplines interested in talking about climate, and more in general, of environmental sustainability in their class. The course is in English and has a duration of 5 weeks and a half (until 3 June) with a weekly commitment of 3-4 hours.
The School Education Gateway is funded by Erasmus+, the European programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. It is operated for the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission by European Schoolnet, an international partnership of 34 European Ministries of Education.
