Understanding Global Change
As you probably know, the earth’s natural system is changing. Many of the aspects of how, where and when is well known within the scientific community, yet the public is slow to accept the science behind these global changes.
In response to the need for a better informed and scientifically literate populace, the University of California Museum of Paleontology (UCMP) and the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) received funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to develop a web-based resource for educators and the general public that will provide rigorously-vetted, non-partisan, scientific information on global change, specifically how the earth’s natural systems are changing.
If you are a teacher/science educator, we need your help! We would like to have a better sense of how teachers (middle school and above, in both formal and informal settings) view global change, the importance of teaching it, and the resources available for doing so. By participating, you can help to inform the development of a new web resource: Understanding Global Change.
The following anonymous survey is being conducted by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) and should take you less than 15 minutes, but will help hundreds of thousands of educators and students for years to come!
