how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- This video provides a short overview of the evidence for global climate change. It needs to be supplemented by more thorough materials and activities.
- Use as a prompt - ask students what they think is happening in Arctic if temperature is changing by only a degree.
- Best used in conjunction with the other 10 short videos in the series.
About the Science
- A brief overview of the evidence that Earth is heating rapidly.
- The claims made in this video are not supported by references in the video or on its webpage.
- Comments from expert scientist: This video provides a nice broad overview that the planet is warming and provides examples of the impacts of a seemingly small increase in global average air temperature.
About the Pedagogy
- Engaging cartoon format.
- The breezy style and playful animations of this video will likely engage most students. It lacks a teacher's guide, background materials, etc. that would support its use in a classroom.
