Before you complete this module, take a minute to reflect on why students need to be engaged in learning about climate change not only as a global, but also local issue, and how learning activities that also engage youth with contributing to a decrease in the rate of global change are an important pedagogic approach.
Brainstorm any ideas you have for possible activities or projects that would get your students involved in local solutions for climate change. You may wish to begin your brainstorming by exploring "Taking Action for Nature and Your Community," which provides a step-by-step approach, guiding students through the creation of a climate-change service learning project.
Finish 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 mitigation/adaptation of global climate change?
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.
NASA wants to hear about your experience in this module. Please complete the Short Term Experience - Educator End of Event Survey. This survey is anonymous.
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.
