Teaching Tips

A description of the role of models in climate science should precede the viewing of these graphs. Instructors should review the units used on the graphs.

Each of the six scenarios could be assigned to different working groups that could investigate the scenario in depth and then report out to the other groups. Groups could be tasked with identifying which stakeholders might be invested in the scenario. Creative educator could create a debate. Each of the scenarios is only a possible outcome along with a range of decisions that are associated with the scenario.
