Love, Julia – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
Colleges have spent years trying to make their campuses as sustainable as possible, in part to mitigate the effects of global warming. But few of them have strategies to adapt to those effects as they happen. This summer, the most widespread drought in decades, coupled with extensive wildfires and hurricanes, has some administrators thinking about…

Chiu, Mei-Shiu; Yeh, Huei-Ming; Spangler, Jonathan – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2016
The emergent crisis of global warming calls for energy education for people of all ages and social groups. The Taiwanese government has publicized 10 declarations on energy conservation and carbon reduction as public behavior guidelines to mitigate global warming. This study uses interviews with quantitative assessment to explore the values and…

Sadler, Troy D.; Klosterman, Michelle L. – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2009
The authors present an activity to help high school students conceptualize the sociopolitical complexity of global warming through an exploration of varied perspectives on the issue. They argue that socioscientific issues such as global warming present important contexts for learning science and that the social and political dimensions of these…

Stover, Shawn K.; McArthur, Laurence B.; Mabry, Michelle L. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2013
Although evidence supporting anthropogenic global warming and evolution by natural selection is considerable, the public does not embrace these concepts. The current study explores the hypothesis that individuals will become more receptive to scientific viewpoints if evidence for evolution and implications of global warming are presented as issues…

Versprille, Ashley N.; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2015
While much is known about secondary students' perspectives of climate change, rather less is known about undergraduate students' perspectives. The purpose of this study is to investigate general chemistry students' understanding of the chemistry underlying climate change. Findings that emerged from the analysis of the 24 interviews indicate that…

Karpudewan, Mageswary; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Bin Abdullah, Mohd Nor Syahrir – International Journal of Science Education, 2015
Climate change generally and global warming specifically have become a common feature of the daily news. Due to widespread recognition of the adverse consequences of climate change on human lives, concerted societal effort has been taken to address it (e.g. by means of the science curriculum). This study was designed to test the effect that…

Lambert, Julie L.; Bleicher, Robert E. – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2017
Findings of this study suggest that scientific argumentation can play an effective role in addressing complex socioscientific issues (i.e. global climate change). This research examined changes in preservice teachers' knowledge and perceptions about climate change in an innovative undergraduate-level elementary science methods course. The…

Frank, Anna M.; Froese, Rebecca; Hof, Barbara C.; Scheffold, Maike I. E.; Schreyer, Felix; Zeller, Mathias; Rödder, Simone – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2017
The ability to conduct interdisciplinary research is crucial to address complex real-world problems that require the collaboration of different scientific fields, with global warming being a case in point. To produce integrated climate-related knowledge, climate researchers should be trained early on to work across boundaries and gain an…

Gola, Beata – Ethics and Education, 2017
Due to the increased interest in ecology, global warming and numerous environmental problems, ecological issues are becoming extremely important in education. Many researchers and thinkers believe that solutions to environmental problems are affected by the environmental ethics adopted. This article identifies which of the three branches of…

Skamp, Keith; Boyes, Eddie; Stannistreet, Martin – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2009
In an earlier paper (Skamp, Boyes, & Stanisstreet, 2009b), students' beliefs and willingness to act in relation to 16 specific actions related to global warming were compared across the primary secondary interface. More primary students believed in the effectiveness of most actions to reduce global warming and were willing to take those…

He, Xinyu; Deng, Yang; Yu, Saisai; Wang, Houxiong – Science & Education, 2020
Scientific argumentation is a key practice in the construction, confirmation, and legalization of scientific knowledge. Although studies on scientific argumentation have been relatively plentiful, there are few quantitative studies on how students mentally perceive scientific argumentation, given that traditional quantitative tools such as Likert…
