Ledley, Tamara Shapiro; Gold, Anne U.; Niepold, Frank; McCaffrey, Mark – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
In recent years, various climate change education efforts have been launched, including federally (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Science Foundation, etc.) and privately funded projects. In addition, climate literacy and energy literacy frameworks have been developed and…

Boylan, Colin – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2008
As environmental changes become a significant societal issue, elementary science curricula need to develop students' understanding about the key concepts of energy and climate change. For teachers, developing quality learning experiences involves establishing what their students' prior understanding about energy and climate change are. A survey…

Merritt, Eileen G.; Bowers, Nicole; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E. – Grantee Submission, 2019
The development of energy literacy for all citizens is critical as we face climate change and rapid depletion of existing energy resources. This study explores energy literacy development in fourth grade classrooms. Our team developed a curriculum on energy resources aligned with the Next GenerationScience Standards. We then trained teachers how…

Steiner, Sherrie – Forum on Public Policy Online, 2016
What began as a professor's classroom illustration to encourage students to take climate change seriously sparked a student movement that transformed Eastern University into a leader in environmental stewardship and social responsibility. How did this happen at an evangelical university in a conservative coal state that, at the time, was producing…

Simpson, Walter – Facilities Manager, 2012
When the author is invited to speak about climate change, he always makes these four basic points: (1) Climate change is real and occurring; (2) It's principally caused by burning fossil fuels, which releases the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide; (3) The consequences are serious; and (4) It's not too late to do something about it. These points…

Langbeheim, Elon; Rez, Peter – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
This paper describes the basic tenets of a sustainable energy course for university science majors. First, it outlines the three core components of the course: (1) The scientific evidence for the connection between climate change and energy usage; (2) An analysis of the capacity and environmental impact of various renewable and traditional energy…

Wikina, Suanu Bliss; Thompson, Cynthia Carlton; Blackwell, Elinor – Journal of Technology Studies, 2010
Increasing population, total economic volume, and human consumption levels have resulted in problems of resource shortages, climate change, ozone layer depletion, land regression, and deteriorating environmental pollution. Printing and related industries constitute one of the major sources of environmental pollution due to heavy energy and…

Jones, Douglas E. – 1992
This annotated bibliography on global climate change contains 27 articles designed to expand the breadth and depth of information presented in the Global Change Information Packet. Most articles were chosen from journals likely to be available in most medium-sized public or college libraries. The articles cover a variety of topics related to…

Bardeen, Tara – Instructor, 2007
Global warming affects every living thing on Earth--people, plants, and animals. While scientists are working to better understand how the Earth's climate will change over time, some effects are already evident: rising sea levels, shrinking glaciers and polar ice caps, changes in the distribution of plants and animals, increases in intense…

Cymrot, Donald J.; Martinez, Miguel; Jones, Joseph F. – Regional Educational Laboratory Appalachia, 2010
To support the work of Tennessee's Energy Efficient Schools Initiative (EESI) Council, this report describes data on energy expenditures in school districts for 2002/03-2007/08. Energy expenditures rose from about 2.6 percent to about 3.0 percent of total expenditures over the period, with some differences in the mix of energy types and…

Gonzalez, Dario A. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
I discuss how three preservice mathematics teachers' (PSTs') covariational reasoning supported the mathematization of a simple energy balance model (EBM) for global warming, and how such mathematization shaped PSTs' understanding of the link CO2 pollution and global warming. I use Thompson & Carlson's (2017) levels of covariational reasoning…

Christian, David – NAMTA Journal, 2018
"In the twentieth century, we humans began to transform our surroundings, our societies, and even ourselves. Without really intending to, we have introduced changes so rapid and so massive that our species has become the equivalent of a new geological force. That is why many scholars have begun to argue that planet Earth has entered a new…

Maddock, Brad; Kriewaldt, Jeana – Geographical Education, 2014
Unparalleled amounts of energy derived from fossil fuels now drive societies and shape people's worldviews. Geography's unique perspectives have significant potential to expand understandings of the effects of production and consumption of energy by drawing on the concept of sustainability using an integrated systems approach. As citizens' energy…
