How do YOU teach about climate justice?
A short survey for high school teachers of colour


About the Study

This study aims to capture how Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPoC) teachers develop and conceptualize ‘climate justice education’ within their high school classrooms. The purpose of this survey is to better understand what resources and knowledge inform your teaching and learning on the topic of climate justice. This survey should take approximately 6-8 minutes to complete.

Who is the target audience of this survey?

The target respondent of this survey is anyone who:

1)      currently teaches at a public secondary school in Ontario and;

2)      identifies as Black, Indigenous or a Person of Colour (BIPoC) teacher and;
3)      teaches about climate justice issues or engages in environmental education in their respective teaching/subject area(s).

About the study
In this study, I am examining the pedagogical practices of climate justice educators of colour who work in two contexts: high schools and community organizations that deliver youth-focused programming on the environment. I am interested in learning more about how educators of colour, such as yourself, make pedagogical decisions on how to teach about the climate crisis. This study is being conducted in two stages. Stage One is a short survey. Stage Two consists of follow-up online interviews with select respondents.

You face little to no physical, psychological, social, or legal risks from participating in this study. Given that this survey will ask questions about your ideas and feelings about the climate crisis, there is a risk that you may experience psychological-emotional vulnerability in reflecting on your experiences and the experiences of your students. If any time you feel uncomfortable discussing these topics, you are welcome to skip any question and/or withdraw from the study altogether with no consequence.

Your participation in this research will be confidential and you will be assigned a pseudonym in all research transcripts, documents, and reports. Your name will not appear in any thesis or report resulting from this study, however, with your permission anonymous quotations from this survey may be used. 

Please note that once this survey is submitted, you will be unable to withdraw participation from this survey.
