Understanding Global Change Survey

by rochelle on Mar. 6th, 2013 Comments Off

As you probably know, the earth’s natural system is changing. Many of the aspects of how, where and when is well known within the scientific community, yet the public is slow to accept the science behind these global changes.

In response to the need for a better informed and scientifically literate populace, the University of California Museum of Paleontology and the National Center for Science Education received funding from the Moore Foundation to develop a web-based resource for educators and the general public that will provide rigorously-vetted, non-partisan, scientific information on global change, specifically how the earth’s natural systems are changing.

They need your help to better understand how teachers (at all grade levels, in both formal and informal settings) view global change, the importance of teaching it, and the resources available for doing so. Don’t teach about global change issues? They want to know that too!

To participate in the survey, follow this link:
UNDERSTANDING GLOBAL CHANGE SURVEY

This anonymous survey is being conducted by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study and should take you less than 15 minutes, but will help hundreds of thousands of educators and students for years to come! Please complete this survey by March 31st.

If you have any questions about the survey, please email ugcinfo@bscs.org.
