Community Expert

Description: 

Find an expert in the field of learning that you are discussing in the classroom – whether it is the science behind climate change, sustainable investing, indigenous leadership on combating climate change etc. to speak to your class about their expertise, and engage students in learning, considering alternative perspectives, and thinking critically.

Inviting a community expert into the classroom is a really effective way of deepening the learning experience for students, and a starting point for expanding the subject matter from classroom learning into ‘real world’ applied learning. Teachers can’t always be experts on every subject, especially with such a complex and challenging subject like climate change.
