Shealy, Tripp; Klotz, Leidy; Godwin, Allison; Hazari, Zahra; Potvin, Geoff; Barclay, Nicole; Cribbs, Jennifer – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Climate change has not been well understood by high school students in the US and the topic is often connected to misconceptions, which is especially damaging since accurate understandings of the concepts are strongly predictive of intent to do something about it. We use data from a national (US) survey of first year college students to identify…

Stevenson, Kathryn T.; Peterson, M. Nils; Bondell, Howard D. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Understanding adolescent climate change concern (CCC) may be a key strategy for building a citizenry that supports climate change action, as adolescents are likely less influenced by ideological polarization than adults. Prior research shows that climate education may build concern among adolescents, but other factors such as peer pressure may…

Bentley, Andrew P. K.; Petcovic, Heather L.; Cassidy, David P. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Individuals are exposed to misleading or outright false anthropogenic climate change (ACC) information. The goals of this study are to identify ACC dissenter messages, and to develop an instrument that quantifies the extent to which individuals agree with these messages. The instrument was developed using a sequential mixed methods design. A…

Waldron, F.; Ruane, B.; Oberman, R.; Morris, S. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Given the radical reduction in carbon emissions required from developed countries, a robust and justice-orientated educational response is necessary to support the collective actions needed to mitigate climate change. This exploratory study uses thematic analysis of interview and focus group data to investigate the understandings of educators,…

Increased interest in climate change education and the growing recognition of the challenges inherent to addressing this issue create an opportunity to conduct a systematic review to understand what research can contribute to our ideas about effective climate change education. An academic database, EBSCO"host," was used to identify 959…

Li, Christine Jie; Monroe, Martha C. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Hope is an important component that helps engage people in solving problems. Environmental educational resources addressing climate change effectively should ideally nurture hope as well as increase understanding about the issue. However, hopefulness about resolving climate change challenges is a relatively new construct in the literature and…

Fauville, Géraldine; Strang, Craig; Cannady, Matthew A.; Chen, Ying-Fang – Environmental Education Research, 2019
The Ocean Literacy movement began in the U.S. in the early 2000s, and has recently become an international effort. The focus on marine environmental issues and marine education is increasing, and yet it has been difficult to show progress of the ocean literacy movement, in part, because no widely adopted measurement tool exists. The International…

Tsai, Liang-Ting; Chang, Cheng-Chieh – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This study established a Chinese scale for measuring high school students' ocean literacy. This included testing its reliability, validity, and differential item functioning (DIF) with the aim of compensating for the lack of DIF tests focusing on current scales. The construct validity and reliability were verified and tested by analyzing the…

McCauley, Veronica; McHugh, Patricia; Davison, Kevin; Domegan, Christine – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Ocean literacy is an understanding of the ocean's influence on us and our influence on the ocean. A lack of ocean literacy presents a significant obstacle for citizens to engage in environmentally sustainable behaviour, and thus is acknowledged as a 'complex problem' that requires deliberative participation and joint-action by stakeholders across…

To understand both immediate and longer-term effects of a short duration, interpretive wildlife tourism program, we studied responses from participants in a sea turtle watch program. This program comprised an interpretive presentation followed by an opportunity to view a nesting loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta). We conducted 37 programs in…
