Environmental Science Course content

The Habitable Planet: A Systems Approach to Environmental Science 
 This course will help teachers of biology, chemistry, and Earth science provide more content in their classes. The course components include 13 half-hour video programs, a coordinated Web site which includes the streamed video programs, the course text online, five interactive simulations, background on the scientists who created the content and those whose research is documented, a professional development guide (also available in print form), and additional resources.

The site also features videos, interactive lab exercises, additional visuals, an online textbook for each topic, and a helpful glossary of terms that runs from "acid rain" to "zoozanthellae." Each program is well-written and executed, and anyone looking for a bit of a refresher on these topics will find this resource most interesting.
