Teaching the Sociology of the Climate Crisis, is a google document of resources I prepared for a teaching workshop on climate justice at the 2018 meeting of the American Sociological Association. It includes many of the activities and readings I use in environmental studies courses and emphasizes a climate justice approach to teaching the climate crisis.
