The Places with Hazards curriculum was developed for secondary-level earth science teachers as a means of preparing students to live more safely in a world that can pose problems from natural hazards. Students should be able to make wise choices about where to live and work. The objectives are to learn about natural hazards, how they can be identified, what effects they have, and how they can be mitigated. Places in Utah are identified where natural hazards have occurred and can be expected to occur
The curriculum contains ten sections: (1) overview, (2) earthquakes, (3) slope failures, (4) problem soil and rock, (5) radon, (6) volcanoes, (7) avalanches, (8) wildfires, (9) floods, and (10) dam safety. Each lecture is accompanied by a set of 35 mm slides for classroom use. Also included are activities, master sheets, glossaries, and resources.
