Climate Optimism (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

In this interdisciplinary class, we will learn about the current state of the global climate crisis. This class will be a mix of science, English, current events, and project-based learning. 

My objective is for students to come away from this class with more understanding about climate science; knowledge about movements and solutions happening locally and worldwide; and to gain skills and strategies that can be implemented immediately. And – to embody agency, power, and hope. 

Some examples of the type of work in this class: 

  • Reading, analyzing, discussing current articles from major publications about climate solutions
  • Initiating a “green team” at school who could, for example, create and implement a system for our compost and other waste – get a worm bin??
  • Researching local climate solutions and grassroot movements happening in Seattle 
  • Basic science lessons on how and why climate change is happening 
  • Study local Indigenous Science and consider how we might initiate those systems on small and large scales 
  • Learning from visiting speakers who are currently working in the environmental sector
