Today's Essential Question: How does each party define the problem of climate change, and how does that definition shape the solutions they support?
Objective: To understand how our party defines the problem, and what solutions are being proposed.
Framing: Today we’re going to transition from background knowledge and context to looking at different solutions being proposed to fix climate change. Today combined with tomorrow’s in-depth article study is going to get us ready for the party caucus and legislation brainstorm on Friday. Remember, the goal by the end of this week is to have some concrete ideas for legislation, and a solid understanding of your senator and party positions.
Years of Living Dangerously: Part 6 (50 min)
Watch, and take notes in your Climate Change packet on page 10 of your packet. Discuss and debrief.
Partner with another senator from your party. Go to your party’s political platform.
1. For Democrats, go the section titled “COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE, BUILD A CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY, AND SECURE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE” You’ll see there are three subtopics here—read all three!
2. For Republicans, go straight to the section titled “America’s Natural Resources.” Read the subtopics here titled “A New Era in Energy” and “Environmental Progress.”
After reading these sections, answer the questions in on Climate Change packet pages 11 and 12.
None! Unless you didn’t finish the platform study. Then you need to finish it.
