This April is Earth Month! Get prepared during this asynchronous course to talk about climate change, local impacts, and teaching tools to bring this content into your own classroom! This course will also include resources for having challenging conversations around climate change and exploring data with support of a climate scientist.
Through asynchronous learning via Canvas, participants will have a chance to authentically engage with activities and experts as they grow their understanding how climate change has and will impact their community. Analyze and interpret recent climate science data with Dr. Kat Huybers, a climate scientist and lecturer from the University of Washington and progress understanding on the most salient climate change indicators in Washington.
Course Kicks Off On
