Going Local with Global Warming


In this professional development learning experience, you have analyzed weather and climate data in order to identify trends or patterns while also learning about the differences between weather and climate. You examined global climate change while analyzing your local data.

Finish up this module by reflecting on what you have learned and making a plan for future professional development.

What resources would you consider using from this module in your classroom?

What questions do you still have related to the use of data to develop students’ understanding of the relationship between weather, climate, and climate change?

NASA wants to hear about your experience in this lesson. Please complete the Short Term Experience - Educator End of Event Survey. This survey is anonymous.

Congratulations on completing this module! You have explored techniques, strategies, and readings that will improve your STEM instruction and facilitate students’ understanding of global climate change. We recommend that you continue to look for opportunities to use NASA resources and primary data to involve students in relevant problem-based learning.

We hope you will consider taking another global climate change module from PBS and NASA and online courses from PBS TeacherLine to increase your knowledge about STEM instruction and global climate change.
