Publish on Climate Lit

We publish two types of content on the site:

Literature Database Entries: brief, critical, detailed snapshots of a text conducive to teaching climate literacy in the classroom. These entries are meant to give educators enough information to get started planning curriculum. 

Glossary Entries: robust explanations of climate concepts. These include descriptions of the term’s origin, its usage and meaning, and links to related concepts.

Curriculum: lesson plans, activities, assessments, and more.

These resources are meant to serve teachers in the classroom. They are free for all to use.

Please be sure to check the guidelines for these types of entries. Submissions can be uploaded through the CLE submission portal.

Publish in Climate Literacy in Education

Climate Literacy in Education is a peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal that publishes both original writing and re-published content.  No matter whether you are a seasoned teacher/scholar or a new writer/practitioner, we are looking for insightful, challenging, and innovative writing that engages with the challenge of building universal climate literacy using stories for young audiences. Specifically, we publish the following types of content:

Curricula: classroom resources for teaching climate literacy and/or mobilizing climate activism with stories: lesson plans, unit design, activity and project plans, syllabi, assessment, teaching methods, formulas or instructional strategies.

Reflections: opinion pieces, personal reflections, teaching testimonials and reports, reflections on student created projects, reflective reviews of scholarship or methodologies applicable to classroom teaching, and other practice-based forms of narrative reflection. 

Critical Essays: academically crafted and theoretically informed articles that present an in-depth argument about a broader issue or challenge related to climate literacy and explore its pedagogical implications.

Creative & Multimodal: submissions go beyond nature appreciation or observation to engage with ecocentric concepts, systems, and ethics. These submissions should include a reflective component (framing narrative) called Artist Statement or Description to situate the creative component.

Please be sure to check the guidelines for the journal. Submissions can be uploaded through the CLE submission portal.
