How to use this learning and assessment resource to improve practice:
Climate change has proved to be a controversial and political issue and a proportion of the UK public remain sceptical about the scientific evidence used to support it – despite the fact that this evidence has received the backing of the vast majority of the global scientific community.
This resource has been designed to help teachers improve their practice in learning and teaching relating to climate change. It is vital that our young people are equipped with the skills to think critically and question how the media reports climate change. As global citizens, they need to be able to evaluate environmental, scientific and technological information in order to develop informed opinions about this issue.
