For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System.

Goals and Objectives
- Students will be provided with world-wide examples of coastal communities that face coastal hazards.
- Students will examine the responses by communities to these hazards.
- Students will weigh the options for the future for vulnerable coastal communities.
By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:
- examine data to create profiles of coastal communities around the world to gain an understanding of the complexities of living with coastal hazards;
- analyze vignettes of experiences of coastal communities, such as those affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan, Super Storm Sandy and other recent catastrophic coastal events, as well as longer term sea level rise effects;
- explore extent of real-life impacts to coastal communities as a result of recent storms and sea level change;
- develop pros and cons for responses by communities and create a hypothetical future scenario for a coastal community.
