It also can be challenging for students to learn to support their claims with evidence-based reasoning. Yet, to be engaged citizens, students need to be able to evaluate explanations and weigh evidence.

* What strategies have you used to support evidence-based reasoning in your science classes? Are your students provided with opportunities to use evidence to evaluate claims?

* What activities have you used to develop your students' evidence-based reasoning skills?

Global Climage Change


With atmospheric carbon dioxide levels topping 400 parts per million, the concentration of this greenhouse gas is far higher today than it has been in the last 400,000 years. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, "scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal." The results? Rising global temperatures and sea level, retreating glaciers, and extreme changes in many physical and biological systems. Global climate change is the most significant environmental issue of the 21st century. Have you developed activities to increase student awareness and understanding of our changing climate?
