Teaching Materials

We are continuously developing and trialing interdisciplinary teaching materials and resources on human evolution and human behavior, particularly in relation to sustainable development.

We are also in the process of developing an interactive database for accessing, evaluating and improving these materials. 

In the meantime, contact Dustin Eirdosh for further information or explore teaching materials on www.GlobalESD.org.


Teacher's Guide to Evolution, Behavior, and Sustainability Science

Our Teacher's Guide to Evolution, Behavior, and Sustainability Science provides educators with an interdisciplinary road map to understanding the origins, development, and flexibility of our uniquely elaborated human capacities to cooperate around things that matter. The guide is a fun and resource-packed document that can help teachers from across traditional subject areas come together around understanding what makes us human, and how our understanding of our species impacts our views on social change and the challenges of planetary sustainability.

Frontiers for Young Minds

Frontiers for Young Minds (https://kids.frontiersin.org/) is a scientific journal written by scientists, reviewed by youth. 

We work to contribute scientific content as well as support the youth review processes through our Community Science Lab

We have an in press contribution:

Hanisch, S., Eirdosh, D., Schäfer, M. & Haun, DBM. (in press) Fair is not fair everywhere: How children across cultures share the benefits of working together. Frontiers for Young Minds.

Our Community Science Lab supported the youth review of this Young Minds article:
