weather and climate help please

Discussion in 'Geography' started by bartin, Apr 4, 2012.

  1. I would appreciate it if any teachers would be willing to contribute to a quick bit of research on the teaching and learning of climate and weather in schools.
    In particular I'm after teachers who teach weather/climate which probably amounts to Primary and Secondary geography or science.
    I have set up a very short 10 question multi-choice survey at
    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KSWCL7C
    Thanks in advance ;-)

    Hi,
    have completed survey for you. I don't teach KS5 so not sure if weather and climate comes into it, I don't really feel we are lacking in knowledge or skills (Q8), but a new perspective is always worth considering.
    What are you going to do with your research??
     
  4. Hi,
    Have completed your survey. We teach weather and climate explicitly at AS and A2. Unfortunately, the new GCSE spec that we started teaching does not cover this (we are now looking at an alternative that does).
    Weather and climate isn't well embedded into the KS3 schemes of work though I think it is critical that this changes. Fundamental understanding of the way the atmosphere behaves is incredibly important.
