Resources for Environmental Literacy
Resources for Environmental Literacy offers a fresh way to enhance your classroom productivity. The environmental context it provides can improve your students' science learning even as learning the science improves their ability to deal with five real-world topics: Biodiversity; Genetically modified crops; Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis; Global climate change; Radioactive waste.

This resource helps students build skills in critical thinking and analytical reasoning about complex issues. Resources for Environmental Literacy is designed for teachers of middle school life science and physical science as well as high school Earth science, biology, and physics. The modules offer appropriate teaching strategies plus high-quality resources to deepen your students' understanding of key environmental topics.
