Discussion Topics

How Climate Wrote History (An Interdisciplinary Course)
Instructors Marcelle Doheny and Jerry Hagler take participants on a tour of their interdisciplinary approach to teaching climate change. Science and history come together in interesting ways to uncover the role climate has played in history.

Confluence: The Intersection of Environmental Stewardship and Global Citizenship
Instructor Mark Cutler facilitates a “think tank” style discussion for participants to generate ideas for Learning in the World programming that emphasizes environmental stewardship as global citizenship and vice versa. The session will begin with a case study and then will be open for the group to brainstorm how to further enhance the opportunities available to students and adults to engage with communities both near and far to address the challenges of our global society.

Climate Reading Club and Rhiana Gunn Wright
Librarian Derek Curtis and Maggie Kalkstein ’23 lead a discussion about upcoming Climate Café speaker, Rhiana Gunn Wright, and offer a sneak preview of other exciting Climate Reading Club initiatives!

Ethics and Literature of Climate Change
Instructors MJ Engel and Rachel Muree, and Frank Zhou '22, showcase ethics and creative literature-based approaches to teaching and learning about climate justice.

Education for Sustainability: Draft PA Framework
Education for Sustainability (EfS) is “learning that links knowledge, inquiry, and action to help students build a healthy future for their communities and the planet,” as defined by the Sustainable Schools Project. A working group of faculty, staff, and administrators met regularly last year to better understand EfS and develop a draft framework for integrating it across our curriculum. In this session, we will delve into the draft framework and begin to ground truth the competencies and content it prescribes for our students as they tackle societal and environmental issues including climate change.

Please RSVP and share your breakout room preferences via the link below before Tuesday, October 6, at 5 p.m. EST: forms.gle/s9XDqKXPZFfZacpF9
