We are concurrently experiencing two global crises – the climate crisis and COVID-19. What are connections between the two? Why are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities disproportionately affected by both? Participants will have the opportunity to explore these questions and more and this FREE online asynchronous canvas course. The canvas course includes recordings from two guest speakers. Dr. Isabel Carrera Zamanillo from Stanford University will present on climate justice connections. Dr. Carrie Tzou, Professor and Director of the Goodlad Institute for Educational Renewal at UW Bothell, will share strategies and instructional resources for teaching about COVID-19.
The course is open from May 10, 2021 at 7 AM to June 13, 2021 at 5 PM.
This is an asynchronous course through Canvas to be completed at your own pace. Teachers currently employed by a school district (or private school) are eligible for a $150 participation stipend upon completion of the entire canvas course.
