An Inconvenient Sequel Teacher's Workshop

December 18, 2017 8:30 am -  1:30 pm


Middle and high school science teachers are invited to participate in this teacher workshop to facilitate climate science learning in the classroom. 

Learn how to help students understand the science behind climate change and rising sea level. Inspire them to find ways to support the use of clean energy. A portion of this workshop includes a viewing of the film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power in the Edelman Planetarium. A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting follow-up, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes – in moments both private and public, funny and poignant – as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

The workshop will include a Teacher’s Guide created by the National Wildlife Federation. This educational resource will “help students understand climate change while inspiring them to find ways to bring our nation across the finish line to a viable clean energy economy.” The workshop is designed for middle and high school teachers.

The workshop will include activities before and after the movie (each lasting 45 – 60 min) and the film (100 min).
