Subject: Climate Change Education Resources from NESTA
Our Climate Change Teacher Resource page http://www.windows2universe.org/teacher_resources/climate.html provides links to lots of resources to support educators, including hundreds of pages of supporting background content, professional development resources for teachers (workshops, web seminars, links to relevant agency resources, etc), dozens of classroom activities, videos, interactives, and position statements.
Our Content for Climate Change Education Courses http://www.windows2universe.org/teacher_resources/climate_change_course.html page provides a set of readings on climate change that can be used to support a course (I am using these resources in support of a course this term for a general education course at the University at Albany).
Topics available to date (the list will continue to expand over the coming month) include:
The Nature of Science
Weather and Climate
Earth System Science
Reading Nature’s Clues to Earth’s Climate Past
Earth’s Climate History
Climate Change Today
Powerpoints will be available soon.
