  1. Examine your own understanding of global climate change and human impacts working through activities that connect to big climate change concepts;
  2. Modify existing activities and create new lessons about global climate change to incorporate into your own instruction;
  3. Develop a library of tools and resources that you can use to inform your future instructional design around climate change;
  4. Use the NGSS science and engineering practices (constructing explanations and creating models) to develop your own and students' understanding of the concepts;
  5. Analyze student thinking about climate change through video cases
