Wright contributes to teaching module about climate literacy

Laura Wright, associate professor and head of WCU’s English Department, is among the co-authors of a teaching module about climate literacy called “Cli-Fi: Climate Science in Literary Texts,” offered free to teachers on the site of the publisher, InTeGrate.

Developed in collaboration with Jennifer Hanselman of Westfield State University, Rick Oches of Bentley University and Jennifer Sliko of Pennsylvania State University at Harrisburg, the two- to three-week teaching module addresses two aspects of climate literacy: understanding of climate science through data analysis and interpretation, and understanding of literary tools and techniques through which climate science is portrayed.

InTeGrateAccording to InTeGrate, the module is designed to be completed in introductory natural science classes where literature is not typically included as a resource, as well as in humanities classes where climate change science is not normally addressed.

“Cli-Fi: Climate Science in Literary Texts” is available online at http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/climate_fact/index.html.

Wright can be reached at 828-227-3976 or by email at lwright@wcu.edu.
