Hazardous Waste and Love Canal PDF

Hazardous Waste and Love Canal PDF
This is a PDF file with presentation and notes to accompany the Hazardous Waste and Love Canal unit. In this unit, students explore the classic case of Love Canal, New York, in which Lois Gibbs—originally described as a "hysterical housewife"—mobilized her community and called attention to the contamination of groundwater by buried hazardous waste and its impact on people’s health. The activities require the students to engage in an investigation of the history of events at Love Canal. The materials in this unit may be used as a stand-alone day of instruction or as part of the complete Environmental Justice and Freshwater Resources InTeGrate Module. This version shows the notes as is stated in the text.
