Teaching About Climate Change - Teacher Training

Highlights of this course will be field and classroom investigations to learn how scientists know climate is changing. This course offers a variety of activities for teachers including methods of studying the changing timing of biological events such as tree leaf drop and bud burst, investigations of physical properties of water, and how these properties impact global circulation currents, and reviewing current resources such as web-sites, curriculum and videos to help students understand the complex abstract topics of climate change. Teachers will consider their own impact on the planet, and explore solutions.
