Advancing Climate Change Education: Student Engagement and Teacher Talk in the Classroom

Preliminary Results from the first cohort of teachers was presented at the American Geophysical Union's Fall 2011 meeting. 

Classroom Implementation, Student Achievement, and Project Evaluation

Our first hypothesis is supported by our finding that, at the classroom
level, the average level of student engagement/interaction is positively

of the curriculum. In addition, we found that the greater the
disengagement, the lower the learning gains.
