This has been the topic of a forum my fellow Grad.Dips. and I have been participating in at uni over the last couple of days. Our science lecturer started it with the above question and the posts that have been added are amazing, interesting, very much all in agreeance that yes, we are worried about what is happening with Global Warming.
Here are a few of the great links my fellow students have found that would be really useful in the classroom:
An interesting book to read on the subject is Flannery, T. (2005). The Weather Makers: The History and Future Impact of Climate Change.
There is such are wide range of topics and issues that need to be covered to fully understand the extent of what is going on with our world, and I'm hoping that as a teacher I will be able to make a little bit of a difference by exploring these issues with the students I have. We have the opportunity of changing our habits in the classroom so that protecting the environment is fun and fulfilling. And something that we just do… not something that is a chore!
