Theme: TEACHING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE: TEXTS AND TASKS

In The Sixth Extinction Elizabeth Kolbert explains that “Right now, we are deciding which evolutionary pathways will remain open to us and which will be forever closed.” How have you incorporated climate change into your curriculum? Do science fiction books have a role to play here? What inquiry projects or writing prompts contribute to this increasingly urgent conversation? How are your students fighting for the future?

Upcoming Issue: May 2024
Theme: BUILDING COMMUNITY WITH ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER LITERATURE

Hate crimes targeting Asian Americans are at unprecedented levels. Teachers have long held that literature can be a tool for combating divisiveness in society. How have you explored the use of AAPI books and poetry in your curriculum? How can we make inclusion of stories from these communities a classroom norm? How do you foster courageous conversations and inquiry-based research to broaden students’ perspectives and foster solidarity?
