ENG 130: Writing to Save the Planet

Units: 4

Students both read texts that urge environmental action, and create their own. They read essays, non-fiction books, poems, plays, and stories about the natural world, ecological disaster and renewal, and climate justice, analyzing what makes this writing effective for its audience. Working individually and in teams, they then turn scientific research on the environment and climate catastrophe into op-eds, tweets, essays, screenplays, graphic novels, websites, and works of literature that could reach larger audiences.
