Reflection: High Quality Task Measuring Energy in the Atmosphere: Exploring Climate Change - Section 2: Explore


I'd like to suggest that one of my best strategies is the use of Bill Nye movie clips. Bill Nye's videos work miraculously to engage students. The students remember the information covered in the movies. The students use the movie to add information to their concept map. I almost always show the clip two times to give them ample time to record what they learned.
