At NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) I am leading a roundtable on Teaching Climate Change in High School within the broader event called High School Matters. My roundtable is called “Thriller Climate-SciFi: Teaching Climate Change to Middle & High Schoolers via fiction”. I will have fun projects and discussion on topics such as rising ocean temps, climate refugees, transgenic crops and future farming.
This is a very popular event. Attendees get to talk up close with authors and teachers, passionate about this issue. There will be up to 25 roundtables to choose from, including presentations on literary classics, YA fiction, “cli-fi,” poetry, non-fiction, inquiry, research, composition, creative writing, genre studies, AP, media literacy, multi-modal literacy, Spanish, teacher education, critical thinking, virtual partnering, eco-justice, and taking action – all addressing climate change. Attendees will have three choices of tables, lasting for 20 minutes each.
I will have a book table at Diamonds in the Desert, a FREE author signing event!
