Resources for Teaching about Natural Disasters

These three chapters are from the NCSS book, The Human Impact of Natural Disasters—Issues for the Inquiry-based Classroom edited by Valerie Ooka Pang, William R. Fernekes, and Jack L. Nelson. Bill Pisarra presents a geographic perspective on natural disasters, while Marc Norman reviews the psychological impact of natural disasters in school. Margaret Smith Crocco and Thomas Chandler look back at Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005.
