In this Spanish 3 lesson students will use prior knowledge from a variety of previous units to access information in articles from Spanish Speaking countries and government agencies to learn about how climate change affects respiratory health and what some countries are doing to mitigate the harm.
In adapting the materials for this section, I wanted to make them more inclusive than they were previously. I also wanted students to get to share their own stories sooner in the process. Finally, I wanted to incorporate more story-telling, as a culturally responsive teaching technique.
