Recognizing Earth Day 2024

At HEP, we are committed to publishing books that explore the intersection of climate change and education. These two titles—which we are highlighting for Earth Day—provide guidance and strategies for educators who want to teach their students about climate change in ways that build in-depth knowledge of the subject, empower students, and promote a social justice mindset.

Teach for Climate Justice

A Vision for Transforming Education

By Tom Roderick

In Teach for Climate Justice, accomplished educator and social and emotional learning expert Tom Roderick proposes a visionary interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to PreK–12 climate education. He argues that meaningful instruction on this urgent issue of our time must focus on climate justice—the convergence of climate change and social justice—in a way that is emotionally safe, developmentally appropriate, and ultimately empowering. 

Teaching Climate Change

Fostering Understanding, Resilience, and a Commitment to Justice

By Mark Windschitl

Teaching Climate Change lays out a comprehensive, NGSS-aligned approach to climate change education that builds in-depth knowledge of the subject, empowers students, and promotes a social justice mindset. In this fortifying and inspiring work, Mark Windschitl guides classroom teachers and educational leaders through an ambitious multilevel, multidisciplinary framing of climate change education as an integral element of school curricula.
