Emergency Management Instruction. Instructor's Guide for Grades 7-9.
North Carolina State Div. of Emergency Management, Raleigh.
Emergency Management education seeks to give students basic information about natural and man-made disasters, preparedness procedures, and survival techniques. The intent of this guide is to aid teachers in presenting disaster survival instruction in the junior high school grades. The materials are designed to supplement existing curricula, where appropriate, and are not intended to be taught as self-contained units of instruction. Materials include student learning objectives, a variety of instructional strategies, student-oriented activities, references, and sample evaluation guides. A media kit, consisting of visuals and handouts, is located at the end of the guide. These pages may be detached and used as masters for handouts without destroying the integrity of the guide. Disasters considered include hurricanes, floods, tornados, thunderstorms, winter storms, heat waves, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, pollution, and nuclear/radiological emergencies. (Author/JN)
