Your Chance to Live: Teacher's Manual.
Lowery, Tamara C., Ed.
This teacher's manual attempts to prepare students to respond to any disaster by providing information about natural and manmade disasters, general strategies for preparedness, survival techniques, a rationale for effective community action, the knowledge needed to face the emotional shock of disaster, and familiarity with the roles and responsibilities of federal, state and local agencies. Each chapter includes a statement of goals and objectives, questions and learning activities, individual projects, and evaluation in the form of essays or quizzes. The manual lists resources available to the teacher for instruction on civil defense, forest fires, heat waves, tornadoes and thunderstorms, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and tidal waves, technological failures, environmental pollution, nuclear disaster, warning systems, and home shelters.
