Over the past nine years, 45 states and the District of Columbia have adopted standards that emphasize “human impacts” on the environment for middle schoolers and the impact of “human activity” on climate change for high schoolers. But many teachers have little or no formal training about climate change, much less about how to teach it, and what students learn about it can vary widely from state to state and even from classroom to classroom.
