how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- There is not a scientifically thorough explanation behind each component of the interactive, so this would need to be accompanied with extra notes or other forms of explanation for students.
About the Science
- Simple diagram of the carbon cycle.
- Descriptions of the science at each component are rather brief.
- Comments from expert scientist: Accurate description of the carbon cycle from a credible agency. I liked how simple the model was, but I also liked how you could interact with it to find more details. Very good description of the carbon cycle, but lacks depth and could use additional content.
