Effective Strategies for Talking about Climate Change in the Classroom
Busch, K. C.; Osborne, Jonathan
School Science Review, v96 n354 p25-32 Sep 2014
Teaching about climate science presents some unique challenges. Unlike many other science topics, mitigation and adaptation to climate change will require students to take action. This article outlines five major challenges to communicating about climate change in the classroom, drawing on research in environmental psychology: scepticism, complexity, uncertainty, scale and emotion. Strategies for effective communication, drawn from research, are also presented.
