We are seeing how climate change is strengthening our storms, wildfires and heatwaves. We need to join with others globally to take action against climate change. Teachers have an important role to play in preparing students to do just that.
Teaching the language of climate change science will provide you with the support to facilitate these big conversations in the classroom — demonstrating how scientific concepts are developed through the language you use and strategically handing over to your students. It makes the links between the Australian Curriculum: Science and the Sustainability cross-curriculum priority, with a focus on developing students’ oral and written language. It includes reliable resources and examples, including focus texts that identify the important language students will need to master – with additional activities and inquiries to guide their learning. Finally, this text includes important actions that you and your students can take to help mitigate climate change, empowering students of all ages to make a difference.
