We have developed and classroom-tested two curriculum modules. Each module is focused on a type of causality that is important to understanding environmental issues and climate change in particular. Module One is called "Becoming Global Thinkers: Thinking About Distant Causes and Effects. It focuses on cases when causes and effects are separated in space and time such that it is challenging to notice them. Module Two is called "Becoming Responsible Individuals: Understanding Distributed Causality." It focuses on cases when many actors play a role in contributing to collective outcomes that they may not intend or even be aware of. If you use them, please send us feedback!
