Picturebook dialogues about environmental and social (in)justice

Climate aware curriculums and reading practices are urgently needed both in school and higher education. As part of a mobility project focusing on enhancing the quality of teacher education by strengthening student teachers’ and staff’s ecocritical thinking and collaboration competency, the students developed experience-based teaching plans for primary education on how to connect literature activities with reflections on and dialogues about environmental and social (in)justice. This curriculum article presents five of these teaching plans in the format of infographics and explains the educational context and relevance of them.
