Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- Nice conversation starter at the end of of a unit on climate change, to begin discussion about solutions and how to communicate the issue. Also some career pathway examples in the STEM fields. Video is on the long side - teacher may want to chunk it up for classroom use.
About the Science
- An overview of how population growth, consumption of natural resources, and climate change are intertwined and what choices we can make as citizens to reduce our impact on our ecosystem. Also stresses the importance of educating people about climate change.
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- Features students and scientists discussing choices one can make to reduce their carbon footprint.
- Engagement aspect good - inspiring to see students appealing to students. But all students are Caucasian. May not appeal to diverse student bodies.
