Lisa Doner: Using Major Storms and Community Resilience in ESP 2110 Introduction to Environmental Science and Policy II at Plymouth State University part of Major Storms and Community Resilience
My course is a first year introduction to environmental science, typically taught as a lecture-lab combination. This module provides the students a more inquiry-driven approach to understanding environmental risks and mitigation and serves as a culminating experience for their first year. It was fascinating to see the really dig into these activities. Over the three weeks of the module, they became far more alert and tuned into the world around them, especially with regard to natural disasters and how prepared (or unprepared) the affected communities were for them. I can build upon these experiences now in the Intro to Geosciences course that follows this one, using their knowledge about risk communication and preparation to engage them in discussions about resilience to catastrophic (earthquakes and volcanos) versus gradual changes (climate and sea level).
