Abstract: 

Citizen Climate Curriculum was created by Climate Generation for high school students and focuses on global climate solutions. This curriculum is tied to national standards and emphasizes civic engagement and helps teachers and students understand the critical and complex climate solutions being discussed on the national and international stage. It also allows students to formulate statements about what they would like to see happen in climate policy and how these policies and actions can be replicated in their states and local communities.

These lesson plans build on Climate Generation's original six lesson plans on the basics of climate change. The lessons cover the carbon cycle, target levels for atmospheric levels of greenhouse gasses, cap and trade, carbon tax, new technologies, concerns of developed and developing countries, and how to formulate position statements.

The curriculum is available to download for free on our website at http://www.climategen.org/what-we-do/education/climate-change-and-energy....
