how CLEAN reviews teaching materials
Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Educators could ask students to discuss the differing perspectives of the anchor and weather forecaster, and the scientific evidence for the long-term global view.
- Video could be used to add a bit of levity at some point near the end of a climate change unit. It does summarize some good, and current, information.
- Could be used as a model from which students could be assigned to create their own video about climate change.
About the Science
- Science (rising temperatures) is exaggerated in this video, but appropriately for the message and nature of the resource.
- Comments from expert scientist: Represents some basic stats of recent climate change in a humorous way. Not a primary piece of educational curriculum, but would be a funny break between lessons.
About the Pedagogy
- No background material or teacher's guide is provided. Since it takes a satirical view of the subject, it would be best used after a more serious examination of the issues with students who will understand the satire.
- May be more suitable for more mature students, high school and up.
