Stress and Coping with Climate Change


As an undergraduate Psychology teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to teach Stress and Coping. This lesson plan will help students to learn about stress: its nature, its causes, and its consequences for individuals. Students will also view and discuss a resource that reports on the impact of climate change—as a causative factor of stress—on the lives of people globally.

Finally, students will participate in a group activity to examine the various characteristics and causes of stress, as evidenced in the lives of these individuals. Thus, the use of this lesson plan allows you to integrate the teaching of a climate-related topic with a core topic in Psychology.
