6 Environmental Science
Book Features Environmental Science for a Changing World Captivates students with real-world stories Explores the science concepts in context Engaging stories Vivid photos and infographics (McMurdo Station, Pg. 23) Environmental Science for a Changing World captivates students with real-world stories while exploring the science concepts in context. Engaging stories plus vivid photos and infographics make the content relevant and visually enticing. The result is a text that emphasizes environmental, scientific, and information literacies in a way that engages students. Science Taught in the Context of Real-World Stories Engaging stories illuminate pressing environmental issues in context. Each story features scientists working in the field and everyday people tackling environmental problems and finding solutions. Running Margin Glossary means students encounter important terms in context. Real Voices, Characters, and Photos draw students in and bring concepts to life. Pictures are of the McMurdo Station, the largest human settlement in the Antarctic, and of Susan Solomon at the McMurdo Station in 1987 (Chapter 2, page 23). There is a map later in this presentation that shows where the station is located.

8 Providing Information for the Future
A Core Message begins every chapter summarizing key chapter ideas and proposing guiding questions. End of Chapter Quizzes are meant to engage and captivate readers. Analyzing the Science Evaluating New Information Making Connections (Chapter 3 – Page 39) >> Environmental Science for a Changing World is full of Skills and Information that Students Can Use Years From Now Every chapter begins with a Core Message summarizing key chapter ideas. End of Chapter Quizzes are meant to engage and captivate readers. Analyzing the Science questions ask students to use the concepts they learned in the chapter to think like a scientist and answer data-based problems to enhance science literacy skills. Evaluating New Information questions ask students to evaluate sources of information presented online and in the media to develop their information literacy skills. Making Connections problems ask students to apply critical thinking skills to case scenarios to build their environmental literacy skills. Example from Page 39 in printed text
