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. Learn more about using, modifying, and sharing InTeGrate teaching materials.
Recommendations for the Louisiana Coast
Formulate detailed recommendations for the future of a coastal community, using real examples from the Louisiana coast.
- Imagine you are a leader in coastal restoration and you manage a limited budget to spend on this small part of the Louisiana coast. Outline the recommendations you would present to the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority for protecting this community. Justify all of your points with facts from the above exercises.
- Imagine you are on a panel of scientists making recommendations to the community in a world in which budgets are tight and there are many competing needs for the resources available. Write a speech with recommendations for the future to be presented at a local public meeting at which the residents of Isle de Jean Charles will be learning about the fate of their town.
