5 So Glad I Took a Gamble on Looking at This Curriculum
After seven years of trying to cobble together a good unit on Climate Change, I think I have found what I’ve been looking for. It is the new NSTA publication Understanding Climate Change. It is divided into nine session that take 19-20 45-minute classes to teach, but this time frame can be shortened if some activities are done as homework. I’ve spent time this summer going through the labs, activities, videos and find it fits well with the AP Environmental Science CED’s Unit 9. I know by the time I get to Unit 9 (the last one), I will be nearing exhaustion and/or sick with something being passed around school, so I wanted to get that part of the year set up before school started. If you are casting about for what to do for climate change, I highly recommend that you take a look at this curriculum. It is well-thought out in terms of content, pedagogy, and science practices. I could have never come close to this level of high-quality teaching on my own.
