One year after Super Typhoon Haiyan, the Philippines is learning from the past in order to prepare for the future.
Through discussion, reading, and video, students will discover that climate change has a significant impact on real people's lives, especially those of children. Students will read about and discuss an extreme weather event partially resulting from climate change—2013's Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and examine strategies of planning ahead for future disasters and "building back better" after a disaster to increase resiliency. Finally, students will consider disaster risk in their own community and create their own plans for addressing these risks using their school as an example.
Build up the analytical and critical thinking skills you and your students need to navigate and succeed in our ever-changing world through our Data Analysis Activity on climate change and its effect on weather-related events like Super Typhoon Haiyan.
This primer on the Philippines and Super Typhoon Haiyan grounds Educators on the foundational knowledge they will need to purposefully plan and effectively execute lessons that engage, inform, and resonate with their audiences.
