Educator Toolbox

CLEAN is here to support all teachers with climate and energy education, from the first-year teacher, to the nature center field trip leader, to the veteran teacher wishing to stay up-to-date. Explore the many ways that CLEAN can support your teaching!

National Climate Assessment Teaching Resources

Learn about the National Climate Assessment (NCA), which offers a wealth of actionable science about the causes, effects, risks and possible responses to human-caused climate change. NOAA, the NCAnet Education Affinity Group, and members of the CLEAN Network have developed a series of guides for educators that focus on the regional chapters of the Assessment Report, helping to unpack the key messages of each region and point to related, high-quality online resources. Learn more about the NCA resources »
