Addressing Sustainability in the High School Biology Classroom through Socioscientific Issues

Developers of SEPUP’s Science and Global Issues high school biology program published an article in the journal Sustainability detailing how their recently revised curriculum is centered around sustainability-related socioscientific issues. In this article, the authors present the framework they developed and used for presenting sustainability to students, as well as the specific contexts that allowed students to develop a deeper understanding of scientific concepts while addressing current and important socioscientific issues.
