Resource Wins GA Silver Award

Rob Gamesby collects GA silver award

We were delighted that our Weather and Climate Teachers’ Guide/ scheme of work for 11-14 geography was awarded a ‘silver’ by the Geographical Association at their conference in April.

“This excellent – and free – resource, accompanied by differentiated PowerPoints, is well-structured, informative, and fits some complex weather and climate topics into a digestible format. The judges felt it is an accessible resource that provides support for subject specialist and non-specialist teachers alike. They liked the examples that the authors used and the way it makes connections from one lesson to another, building the learning along the way.”

5 Climate Change Websites to Keep an Eye on

Here are 5 websites which anyone teaching about climate change may find useful: 

 

The IPCC website for the latest reports. 

Carbon Brief for current articles covering the latest developments in climate science, climate policy and energy policy. 

Gridwatch for live statistics showing UK energy production. 

The Global Carbon Atlas  to explore and visualize the most up-to-date data on carbon fluxes resulting from human activities and natural processes.

The Climate Action Tracker tracks international government climate action and measures it against the globally agreed Paris Agreement aim of “holding warming well below 2°C, and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.”
