There is a discrepancy between the text of the poem "Two Degrees" (Jetn̄il-Kijiner's website, Student Document) and the version performed by Kathy Jetn̄il-Kijiner in the video linked in the Inspire section. The official text from Jetn̄il-Kijiner's website is on the Student Document.
Many parts of the lesson can be done individually, in pairs, or in groups, such as reading the articles or creating the posters.
Students could also write a poem or add some creative elements to their posters.
The two videos in the Investigate section can be cut. Students can still read the two articles in the Investigate section.
In order to cut down on research time, the teacher can provide a list of resources, such as the ones below.
This lesson introduces students to the concept of climate migration and the effects it has on the Pacific Small Island Developing States. The videos and instructional materials on climate migration will also help them determine the sort of data source (primary or secondary) and how these data sources spread the message to a larger audience. Most significantly, students will learn presentation skills for delivering facts regarding climate migration and its effects and ways to amplify the voices, climate stories, and perspectives of the Indigenous peoples to a variety of audiences on posters. We fact-checked the instructional materials, and this lesson passed our science review.
