Summary of Reviews

Reviewer: Carrie Morrill 3 stars

Reviewer: Kirsten Butcher 5 stars
· A comprehensive resource that details information about the IPCC, its working groups, its mission/activities, and the resources it produces.
-Publications are easily accessed in PDF format, as are other resources such as Frequently asked questions about the IPCC. This could be useful for educators who want to use parts of the site or its publications in classroom activities or lesson plans.
-There is good support on this page for beginning (teen or adult) learners: The "About the IPCC" section includes an printable "Introduction to the IPCC" and introduces individuals to the organization, its mandate, its members, etc.
-Not much here directed toward pedagogy but the site appears useful for learners as well as professionals with interest/need in IPCC publications and activities.
