|Title:||Teaching kids to think critically about climate||Contributor(s):||Quinn, Frances (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/16719||Abstract:||Two recently published books suggest that the public - and school children in particular - are being fed lies about environmental issues such as climate change. The books - "How to Get Expelled from School: A guide to climate change for pupils, parents & punters" by Ian Plimer and "Little Green Lies: An expose of twelve environmental myths" by Jeff Bennett - clearly demonstrate how important it is to have a scientifically literate Australia. The distorted and selectively reported science in these books highlights some of the challenges that Australian teachers face in teaching science, and how important it is that they are supported in this task.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||The Conversation (Environment + Energy)||Publisher:||The Conversation Media Trust||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130212 Science, Technology and Engineering Curriculum and Pedagogy||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930299 Teaching and Instruction not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||C3 Non-Refereed Article in a Professional Journal||Other Links:||https://theconversation.com/teaching-kids-to-think-critically-about-climate-5270||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 122
