Climate justice, racial justice: why it matters in the English classroom and what we can do

  • Session C

Presenter(s): Sylvia Goetze-Wake

The planet is changing. We have a choice: to pretend these global changes do not exist or to bring them into our classrooms. As busy ‘normal people’, let alone teachers juggling new tech and new stress, it’s much easier to look the other way. But…we know that these burning topics matter. In this workshop we’ll try to connect the dots between English teaching, our role as educators, our students’ concerns, and the glaring links between the climate crisis and inequality…with the aim of creating a small but impactful classroom revolution. If you are curious about how and why, join us for a rich and meaningful exploration.
