What’s a Science Teacher to Do?
It used to be sex ed that got science teachers into challenging situations once in awhile. Evolution, too, of course. Increasingly, the â€œCâ€ word, climate, is creating challenges for educators trying to explore the heat-trapping properties of carbon dioxide and the implications for climate as concentrations of CO2 and other greenhouse gases rise.
Teachers are encountering pushback from many directions as they try to teach global warming and other climate science topics.
