Module Description: In this module, teacher candidates in science and social studies collaborate to create a web quest on a socio-scientific issue that is global. Teacher candidates in both methods courses were engaged in the study of global warming from both the perspectives of science and social science. Emphasis was placed on understanding the global dimensions of climate change, but also how it impacts different regions in the world differently. After experiencing a global socio-scientific issue as students, they were asked to design a similar experience on a different issue.

I like how this intersects with social education: both the interdisciplinary nature and the attention to science, technology, and society.
