Part II

At the end of the session, participants will break into groups of 2-3 to create a response to a common climate misconception. The 'debunking' will be framed such that it can be used to increase student understanding of these misconceptions. A web page template for the debunking will be provided to each group.

Each group will create a web page that describes the following components

These web pages will be found in the workshop workspace. Only registered workshop participants with SERC accounts will be able to access these pages.
