In the scope of educational research there are studies focused on anthropogenic climate change (CC)with various population universes: college or high education students (Burkholder, Devereaux,Grady, Solitro, & Mooney, 2017), middle and high school (MHS) students (Tasquier & Pongiglione2017), primary education students (Devine‐Wright, Devine‐Wright, & Fleming, 2004) or even teachers (Seow, & Ho, 2016). Also, there are different conceptual approaches and frameworks from which the interpretative and methodological work for researching comes from. Additionally, there are studies that investigate social representations (Flores 2018), that explore knowledge and misconceptions (Shepardson, Roychoudhury, Hirsch, Niyogi, & Top, 2014), or those that identify specific audiences to adjust the most effective communication strategies (Maibach, Roser-Renouf, &Leiserowitz, 2009). We could also add those researches that try to set up the basis of a Climate Change Education (Allison, 2012), and the ones that take a stance on climate literacy as a key skill to face the climate crisis (Azevedo & Marques, 2017). Some others focus on identifying the mosteffective educational (Monroe, Plate, Oxarart, Bowers, & Chaves, 2017) or communicative strategies(Wibeck 2014) in order to offer educational guidelines. A systematic review has been conducted in order to explore how CC has been investigated in relation to MHS students. This method is useful to review and synthesizes results from several studies (Oliver y Tripney, 2017) in order to collect evidences. Thus, this systematic review aims to answer the next question: How perception/representation/knowledge of CC has been investigated in relation to MHS students? That is, which frameworks, methodological designs and research technics have been employed for that purpose?
