Past webinars for teachers of grades 6-12These interactive webinars addressed a variety of topics within climate and energy. Each session was designed for teachers to gather information about science, see example teaching materials from the CLEAN collection, and consider classroom strategies that are particularly suited to these topics.
A recording of each webinar is available below:
- Teaching Essential Principle 1:The Sun is the primary source of energy for Earth's climate system
- Teaching Essential Principle 2: Climate is regulated by complex interactions
- Teaching Essential Principle 3: Life on Earth depends on, is shaped by, and affects climate
- Teaching Essential Principle 4: Climate varies over space and time through both natural and human-made processes
- Teaching Essential Principle 5: Our understanding of the climate system is improved through observations, theoretical studies, and modeling
- Teaching Essential Principle 6: Human activities are impacting the climate system
- Teaching Essential Principle 7: Climate change will have consequences for the Earth system and human lives
- Teaching the Guiding Principle: Humans can take actions to reduce climate change and its impacts
- Teaching Energy Awareness: Making informed choices about energy and sustainability
