From Ohio State University: The Earth Systems Education (ESE) concept is the basis for several projects at Ohio State University promoting integrated earth science education in grades K-12. Guided by The Framework for Earth Systems Education, developed by educators and scientists, ESE integrates all scientific disciplines (see Science Activities, 28(1), Spring 1991). To obtain a bibliography or other information on the following projects contact Rosanne Fortner or Victor Mayer at the Department of Educational Studies, 227 Arps Hall, Ohio State Univ., 1945 N. High St., Columbus OH 43210 (614-292-2332).

Program for Leadership in Earth Systems Education (PLESE) is a national teacher enhancement program sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation. Summer leadership workshops train teachers in Earth Systems Education, who in turn hold local workshops in their area. Workshops for teachers in the southeastern and mid-continental states will be held this summer. Produces the newsletter Plese Note.

Using Remote Sensing and On-Line Databases for Teaching about Global Change. Based on workshops in which scientists guided teachers in the classroom use of computers, with original data sources and versatile software, to teach environmental sciences. Curricula and fact sheets on the technologies were developed.

Global Change and the Earth System is a resource book being developed for middle school and high school teachers, which emphasizes human activity and its effect on global change and contains activities and background information.

Great Lakes Impacts. In conjunction with the Ohio Sea Grant Education Program, a series of short publications called "scenarios" has been developed to help the public understand the prevailing scientific interpretation of what may happen to the Great Lakes with global warming.

Item #d92mar82

Education in Global Change is the first major curriculum project of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), targeted initially at 16-to 19-year-old science students. Through collaboration of scientists and educators, practical, easily used materials are being developed in the form of a series of inexpensive booklets that may readily be copied (copyright waived). For information on contributing to the project or the availability of materials contact either D.J. Waddington, Dept. Chem., Univ. York, Heslington, York YO1 5DD, UK (tel: 44-904-432500; fax: 44-904-432516), or J. Stoltman, Dept. Geog., Western Michigan Univ., Kalamazoo MI 49008 (tel: 616-387-3429; fax: 616-387-0958).

Item #d92mar83

Global Systems Science is one of several curricula being developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science and the Climate Protection Institute (a project of the Earth Island Institute) at the University of California. A variety of resource materials, activities and lesson plans have been developed for junior high and high school students, involving the physical and biological sciences and social studies relating to global warming and ozone depletion. Contact Richard Golden, Lawrence Hall of Science, Univ. California, Berkeley CA 94720.

Item #d92mar84

Beat the Heat: The CO2 Challenge. Provides information that enables elementary and high school students to make a one-ton reduction in CO2 emissions in their homes in the course of a year, through energy conservation. Contact the Children's Earth Fund, Box 2335, 175 Fifth Ave., New York NY 10010 (212-727-4493).

Item #d92mar85

Energy Education Resources--Kindergarten through 12th Grade, Energy Info. Admin., 1991.
