Planning of climate education at school
Methodological guide for middle school teachers
According to UNICEF’s latest study of Armenia’s 52 consolidated communities in 2021, 90 percent of adolescents are willing to learn more about climate change and their most preferred source of learning are schoolteachers and school administration. In addition, the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture has instituted project-based learning approaches to middle school curricula in 2022 for students to acquire 21st century skills while in school.
This is the second manual for middle school teachers that UNICEF developed in response to that change, to support teachers in understanding how to ensure project-based learning at school. It provides a sample of a project, zooming into climate knowledge and action, as well as includes examples of lesson plans, role plays, debates, events, discussions, club activities, and interesting climate change training materials. With the given examples you can create your own course or mainstream into existing ones, ensuring an effective learning experience for students with different academic abilities and different needs.
