Apocalypse When? How to Teach about Human Survival Using the Internet
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v73 n1 p28-30 Jan-Feb 2009
In this article, the author shares some of the observations he gained when he started researching soil degradation, climate change, global warming, and water quality. First, he observed that there were not many websites that focused solely on soil-related issues. Second, not very many of these would be useful to teachers because, while they contained good information, there were only a few that provided suggested curriculum topics or lesson plans. Third, the websites that did try to be education and teacher-friendly were primarily aimed at science educators; and those were primarily college-level courses such as geology and agricultural soil science. Here, the author suggests several websites that cover topics about soil degradation, climate change, global warming, water quality, and many more environmental topics. (Contains 8 online resources.)
