Description: Although some of the information (e.g., 10 steps to reduce your global warming impact) would be accessible to learners with limited prior knowledge of the topic, most of the information is relatively detailed and technical. However, the site appears to provide a very valuable pool of information to advanced learners, especially those interested in public policy as related to global warming.(KB)

Summary of Reviews

Reviewer: Carrie Morrill 4 stars

Reviewer: Kirsten Butcher 4 stars
Comments: Although some of the activities in the curriculum guides are better than others, it likely will depend on the teacher's familiarity with and knowledge of global warming and its specific concepts to effectively complete the exercises and promote student understanding. There are a range of activities specified, which allows educators to pick the lessons that may best suit their goals and abilities.
