how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- The video focuses on Wisconsin. The teacher should consider incorporating local examples into their lesson that uses the video.
- Citizen science projects like Project Budburst or Pikanet or CoCORAHS are very good examples of how students can get involved in doing research and contribute actual data to databases like those referred to in the video.
About the Science
- Video combines footage of actual measurements, instruments, interviews, data, results and some landscape shots.
- Comments from expert scientist: Uses real data to convey the message–I think that the graph that shows the variation in ice cover with the trend is helpful and can be a quite powerful visual aid.
- The provided teaching tips are great.
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- Examples that are used to illustrate the difference between climate and weather are very intuitive.
