Earth's global climate is changing, bringing numerous changes to the planet and the organisms that live on it. Scientific instruments around the world show that our global temperature increased by almost 1.5 degrees celsius since the early 20th century. Consequences of this observed warming include substantial melting of glaciers, rising sea levels, and increased risk of drought, wildfires, and plant and animal extinctions. This course integrates content and pedagogical practices that are important for teaching global climate change at the middle school level.
