This is a free download. The Teacher-Friendly Guide™ to Climate Change is the newest addition to our Teacher-Friendly series. This book includes both the basics of climate change science and perspectives on teaching a subject that has become socially and politically polarized. The focus audience is high school Earth science and environmental science teachers, and it is written with an eye toward the kind of information and graphics that a secondary school teacher might need in the classroom. Print copies are available for purchase, but the download is FREE!!!  Sep 13, 2017, 1:09 PM Kathy Blakemore
