. Kaatje taught this module in an introductory course for non-majors with no pre-requisites at a Community College with 24 students. The course is a natural disasters class that examines how humans are impacted by natural disasters and how we can minimize or exacerbate that risk based on the choices we make. This is a 3-hour integrated lecture and lab that is highly student-centered through inquiry investigations.
