The Habitable Planet: A Systems Approach to Environmental Science—A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Course Description:

Watch students hone their skills as scientific thinkers! Use inquiry-based learning techniques to determine which multimedia resources—Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and more—will best engage your students. In this course, you will build content knowledge as you examine the unique characteristics that make our planet habitable and investigate the effects of human actions on land use, air and water pollution, biodiversity decline, and the extraction of resources. You will also gain essential background for understanding and discussing the nature of Earth systems, including geophysical systems, the atmosphere, the oceans, and natural ecosystems.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
