The Museum of the Earth’s “Teacher Friendly Guide to Climate Change” is an excellent alternative to the Heartland Institute’s anti-climate science publication being distributed to teachers around the country. This NSF-funded project includes both the basics of climate change science and perspectives on teaching a subject that has become socially and politically polarized. The focus audience is high school Earth science and environmental science teachers, and it is written with an eye toward the kind of information and graphics that a secondary school teacher might need in the classroom.
