Apart from what it might demand in specs and SOWs another aspect here is when do we kind of say:

'Job sort of done on that one, it's everywhere, let's be the pioneers for the next really important topic - what should it be?'

Good point - I get the feeling it's increasingly done to death. The reasons for this worry me.
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday

The next important topic is getting people to actually do something about climate change, now that we all agree on what the causes are! Any suggestions?

Anybody interested in talking to a journalist about the way they teach Climate Change and related issues, and how important it is for young people ? Have had a request to identify some teachers, and no response from a few e-mails sent out so far today...

PM or e-mail me for more details if interested...

" Hi I'm Al Gore, I used to be the next president of the United States of America. "

Best bit of the whole film....after this, it all goes downhill.

I've never seen it - why does it go downhill?

well his stance on the subject is very strong, and he has a good argument for everyone to cut emissions etc however the way he goes about it is just pure boring.

another film to watch if anyone is into showing controversial material is "who killed the electric car" by Chris Paine.

Inconvenient Truth is an excellent film to use in class when looking at how to structure and evidence an argument.  Then throw on the CH4 counter argument doc.

NC says pupils should be able to identify bias and respond to it - most media is very biased so some great resources.

Great, thanks Simon, good find :)
I'm lucky enough to be able to basically talk through the issues with my Y9 - though I have also made a powerpoint which goes through many misconceptions students have about global warming and they just have to say 'true', 'maybe' or 'false'...
