Playbuilding for Environmental Literacy: A Guidebook Resource for Secondary EducatorsTaylor, Monica LyneThis MRP presents a guidebook resource for secondary educators who wish to use the method of Playbuilding (PB) in the classroom to investigate the environmental literacy (EL) of their students. EL is a set of skills that enables people to read, write, and interpret information and opinions about the environment and translate them into personal, contextual meaning that impacts people’s ability to take action and agency with environmental issues in their lives. This research project first presents a literature review of all relevant PB and EL research and resources for secondary educators. Then, this study collects and analyses data to inform a new Ontario-based resource for using PB to explore EL that includes the planning, facilitating, and evaluating components of implementing a learning lesson with secondary students.
