This guide is designed to help middle and high school science teachers incorporate energy topics into their classrooms. Energy is related to both the causes and solutions of global climate change. This comprehensive guide allows teachers to learn the details of energy, including physical processes, biological processes, sources, decisions, use, and relation to society. In addition, each topic provides links to materials and ideas for grade-level specific teaching strategies.
The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) Portal was launched in 2010 as a National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Pathways project. It is led by the science education expertise of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Science (CIRES) at the University of Colorado Boulder and the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College.
