“As the teacher-librarian and a History/Geography/Social Studies teacher focussing on global issues I will share the books with teachers and use to introduce the concerns about these issues to students. We are a school of 780 middle grade students. Our new Ontario Social studies curriculum focuses on issues related to overdevelopment, to overpopulation and to the stewardship necessary.
I am active on social media and share activities that my students participate using our school accounts as well as my personal social media accounts. This resource would be especially powerful as it provides evidence of the issues students read about through images of existing areas of concern.”
There are many ways to participate! Together, we can raise awareness and bring about change.
