Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Strongly suggest that educator obtains a map of areas that will be impacted by sea level rise. See: http://library.globalchange.gov/a-human-health-perspective-on-climate-change or http://poleshift.ning.com/profiles/blogs/cities-at-risk-from-rising-sea.
- Photo story could be used in a variety of courses: design/technology/engineering, geography, marine science/oceanography, climate change.
- Students could be encouraged to consider these designs when under severe weather events.
- Students could be encouraged to design and explain their own resolution to coastal cities dealing with sea level rise.
- Highly recommend that educators connect the images to the content in the articles referenced in the slideshow.
About the Science

- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- The photo essay is accompanied by a transcript of background information and a few links are given for students to go into more depth.
