An Investigation of Student Engagement in a Global Warming Debate
Diane M. Schweizer, Gregory J. Kelly January 2005 Journal of Geoscience Education v53 n1 p75-84

This article in the Journal of Geoscience Education investigates how using debate as a pedagogical tool for assessing earth system science concepts can promote active student learning, present a realistic and dynamic view of science, and provide a mechanism for integrating the scientific, political and social dimensions of global environmental change. This is achieved by using the causes of global warming as an example of earth system science for the debate.
