Paradise Lost: Introducing Students to Climate Change through Story
Bennon, Brady
Rethinking Schools, v27 n3 p54-57, 60 Spr 2013
"This country has been the basis of my being. And when it's no longer there, you know, it's unthinkable." Ueantabo Mackenzie's haunting words in the PBS NOW documentary "Paradise Lost" shook the author. He knew he wanted to teach a unit on global warming, especially after participating in the Portland-area Rethinking Schools curriculum group, Earth in Crisis. The author didn't have to be convinced that students need to learn about global warming. But Mackenzie's message startled him: Global warming is here, right now, and it is uprooting people and destroying nations today, starting with Mackenzie's home on the island nation of Kiribati.
