We are actively working to improve student learning and understanding in K-12 schools by engaging in education research.
We seek to answer questions such as:
- How do can we improve students’ environmental citizenship? What do we mean when we say environmental citizenship? How do we measure improvement?
- What do students need to know about carbon, water, and biodiversity in order to become environmentally literate?
- How do students learn ecology from data and investigations?
- What types of activities in the classroom and beyond foster interest and motivation for learning about ecology?
