Responding to the issues and challenges of teaching and learning about climate change from a science education-based perspective, this book is designed to serve as an aid for educators as they strive to incorporate the topic into their classes. The unique discussion of these issues is drawn from the perspectives of leading and international scholars in the field. The book is structured around three themes: theoretical, philosophical, and conceptual frameworks for climate change education and research; research on teaching and learning about global warming and climate change; and approaches to professional development and classroom practice.

"This book is likely to be of interest to you if you are concerned about how the public perceives the issue of climate change... "It will also be of interest to you if you are interested in how students' beliefs affect the way they interpret evidence for any scientific theory..."- Carol Tear, School Science Review
