A hallmark of AMS Climate Studies is the flexibility of course
implementation. The course can be offered using any combination of the AMS
Climate Studies eTextbook,
Investigations Manual, and
RealTime Climate Portal (course website). The course is
adaptable to instructional settings ranging from traditional lecture/lab to
hybrid to totally online and can be used on a variety of schedules, including
semester/quarter, summer session, accelerated degree, or self-paced study.
Course materials are designed for easy integration with
course management systems. The most common approaches to using the course
1. Use the full AMS Climate Studies course
ePackage with emphasis on current datasets - Instructors wanting to
have their students study the most current climate science may choose to use the eTextbook,
Investigations Manual, and Current Climate Studies
prepared weekly on the RealTime Climate Portal. A license is required. Go
to the Order Class Materials page for details on
having your bookstore purchase the Climate Studies Textbook and
eInvestigations Manual Student ePackage.
2. Use the Climate Studies eTextbook and
eInvestigations Manual - Instructors wanting to prepare all materials
prior to the start of the term may choose to use the eTextbook and
Investigations Manual as a full course. Website
material is commonly used as a supplement in this approach. A
license is required. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your
bookstore purchase the Climate Studies Student ePackage.
3. Use the Climate Studies textbook
alone - The Climate Studies textbook is ideally suited for
introductory climate science lecture courses in which students are not expected to
complete the investigations series. The RealTime Climate Portal can supplement textbook study with current data, Weekly Climate News, and other resources. Go to the Order
Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the
Climate Studies eTextbook and RealTime Climate Portal access for students.
