Using "Dante's Peak" to Discuss Response to Risk part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
In this classroom activity, students watch the movie "Dante's Peak" up to the point where Harry Dalton's supervisor arrives and talks to the town council. Students then compare and contrast Harry's assessment and advice to that of his supervisor, discuss the reaction of the town council members, and develop their own recommendations for how the scientists and town should proceed.
