Climate Change Conference

by: Laura Tucker and Lois Sherwood

In this session, students engage in a mock scientific conference to demonstrate another aspect of the work of scientists—sharing work with peers and seeking critical review. The mock conference provides an opportunity for students to present their research, to simulate a science conference, to provide peer-reviewed feedback, and to provide a process for engaging all students in understanding the complex nature of climate change. A materials list, teacher background information, assessment, safety considerations, standards, references, and resources are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, About the Authors, Acknowledgments, Information for Teaching This Unit, and Index.
