The Climate Change and Me Curriculum
The current stage of the Climate Change and Me project involves the implementation of a climate change curriculum in local schools. The curriculum has been developed by a team of academics, teachers and students based on the research undertaken in the project in 2014-2015. The curriculum draws directly on the essays, videos, artworks, stories and poetry that local children and young people created as part of this research. It outlines a ‘collective inquiry process’ which is orientated towards collaborative and project-based learning across the Key Learning Areas of Science, English, Visual and Creative Arts, History and Geography (HSIE).
The curriculum is provided here as a PDF download for teachers and principles to review:
Climate Change and Me – Stage 4 Curriculum (Secondary)
The Changes is the student resource book which accompanies the curriculum. It contains art, essays, stories, poems and photographs by children and young people who participated in the research:
PowerPoint resources have also been developed to support teachers in their implementation of the Stage 2/3 and Stage 4 curricula. These are large files containing extensive video resources and activity prompts for each phase of the collective inquiry process. To request these resources please contact David Rousell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The project team is currently seeking expressions of interest from schools who would like to implement the Climate Change and Me curriculum in 2016. Teachers and principals can register interest by contacting Professor Amy Cutter- Mackenzie (email@example.com) or David Rousell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
