New Regional Guides Help Educators Use the National Climate Assessment
NOAA, the NCAnet Education Affinity Group, and members of the CLEAN network have published a series of guides to help educators teach climate using the regional chapters of USGCRP’s Third National Climate Assessment.
The guides break down key messages for each of the ten U.S. regions covered in the report. Each key message is supported by guiding questions, figures from the report, lesson plans, videos, and other resources.
The guides also demonstrate how the National Climate Assessment can be applied to the integration of Next Generation Science Standards in science education, with an accompanying overview and specific examples for use at the middle school and high school levels.
