ClimateChangeLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure
Middle School and High School Students
Join us during the 2013-14 school year for a distance learning adventure about climate change. ClimateChangeLIVE will bring climate learning to middle and high school teachers and students through a series of webcasts, webinars, and online climate education resources. Find a great collection of science-based resources and programs aligned to national science education standards at http://ClimateChangeLIVE.org.
A series of webinars throughout the 2013-14 school year will help teachers with information and tips for teaching about climate change. For more information, go to http://climatechangelive.org/index.php?pid=178. Two webcasts for middle and high school students in March 2014 will educate, engage, and inspire students to be part of the climate change solution!
Are you apprehensive teaching about climate change? Not sure what to believe after reading different headlines and hearing controversies? ClimateChangeLIVE will help you sort it out for yourself and be confident in educating your students about this important topic! This webinar will be presented by education specialists from three federal agencies immersed in climate change research and issues. We'll be joined by EPA's 2012 Climate Communicator of the Year, the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE). ACE will share tips about how to engage your students, and how your class can be part of the solution, addressing climate change head-on. We'll feature highlights of materials focused on the process of science, how to judge whether what you're reading is good science, as well as misconceptions about climate change. The Department of Energy will highlight the Energy and Climate Literacy Frameworks which identify the Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts one would understand
to be energy and climate literate.
Do you or your students have a question about climate change? Submit your question on the ClimateChangeLIVE web site http://climatechangelive.org and climate scientists will post an answer.
