Diane Ebert-May, Jan Hodder, Kathy Williams, Doug Luckie August 2004 Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment v2 n6 p324-325

This journal article from Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment discusses student-centered, inquiry-based instructional strategies and learning goals for helping students learn about climate change. In this study, students confront their current ideas about global warming by exploring the question, "Where does the carbon go?" Assessments probe the students' understanding and misconceptions before, during, and after instruction to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching and learning.
