Learning About Seasons: A Guide for Teachers and Curriculum Developers

This paper describes findings from 41 studies illustrating why the concept of seasons is difficult to learn. The article is a nice supplement to CTS Sections II, III, and IV. IT also proposes a K-12 learning progression that can be used with CTS Section V that also shows the connections between global climate zones, behavior of light, and a model of Earth in space.
