The IPCC AR6 WG1 Report: A Teachers’ Guide

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the long awaited Working Group 1 report of it's 6th Assessment. We need to remember this date. It will be the day history looks back on, indicating that the final warning claxon to avoid the worst of climate change began sounding from scientists. This post does not offer a commentary on the report, but rather what teachers and students can make of it, as they need to know who the IPCC are and the work they do.

A comprehensive resource bank for teaching climate change

I am delighted to announced that a comprehensive and in-depth set of resources linked to the Geography syllabus about climate change is now available via the Geographical Assoication. They come complete with teachers notes, student worksheets, glossaries and links to further reading/resources.

How to make a graph the talk of the town

A #NGSS workshop by one of the talented @exploratorium Teacher Institute staff demonstrates a range of strategies that makes CO2 graphical data a lively conversation piece. A very useful set of resources for teaching climate change.

AirCore: An innovative approach

Although my horizons are broadening and my skills are getting some sharpening, I get plenty of chances to not give up the day job!

Sky high

Participating in a weather balloon flight with a payload of innovative scientific equipment, and I feel sky high from prep to analysis!

In over our heads (and that’s okay!)

I was very apprehensive about how out of touch and ignorant I was of the scientific processes and knowledge; I thought I would be way out of my depth...

Reflection: An Ode to Hans…

Working on my own visualisation skills, a conversation sparks bittersweet memories of one of the masters of the art.
