All reviews at Climate Lit are written for teachers and other educators. They must be clear and practical, written in accessible language, and showing how the work can be used for climate literacy education with real-world K-12 students. Browse the published reviews as models and examples. No entry is perfect, but collectively they should give you a sense of what we’re looking for. All reviews must fit the following template:

“Start with a short quote from the book/film that captures one of its key ideas/themes—esp. in regard to climate literacy”

Summary paragraph. Briefly summarize the entire story, introducing characters, setting, and conflict. Aim at a minimalist summary that gives our audience a clear sense of what the work is about. You may use quotes and don’t mind spoilers.  

Review paragraph 1. Start with a single sentence that explains the use(s) of this story for climate literacy education. What issues or concepts does it help us notice or consider? What questions does it raise? What connections among various urgencies of climate change does it paint? Be as specific as you can but remember that this is not a lesson plan (though you are welcome to write a lesson plan for Climate Literacy in Education to link to the entry). Often the work will not be entirely about climate change, but will include an episode or chapter that especially lend themselves to climate literacy conversations. Throughout, please use bold face to indicate any relevant terms, concepts, or themes from the Glossary (or add/create one too) so that your audience knows where the work fits within larger strands of climate literacy education. A good practice is to center one or two key concepts—say, slow violence, or animal conservation, or fracking—as key lenses for the work.

Review paragraph 2. If you need more space, use another paragraph. The entire entry should not be longer than 500 words. 

More. If you have links to other reviews, author interviews/talks, related books, lesson plans, or other resources, you may list them below. 

Topics. List any keywords and topics that connect to the entry. 

Images. The entry should be accompanied by high-res image of the cover, and (for picturebooks and other visual formats) a few images of the pages or screenshots. We can help you find these if you do not have any on hand.
