Many debates about climate change pit scientific fact against long held beliefs. This unit allows middle school students to distinguish between facts and opinions, determine credible sources and practice critical skills, such as: asking questions, analyzing and interpreting data, and engaging in argument from evidence, to think critically, make informed decisions and communicate those decisions effectively.
Around the country our schools are providing students with unique, experiential, and applied learning opportunities. Years of Living Dangerously is one of those opportunities you don’t want to miss. As the series unfolds the biggest stories of our time students become emotional involved in the lives of those represented and through your instruction and facilitation will become agents of change, empowered by knowledge and evidence to create and solve our problems today and into the future.
