Reflection: Lesson Planning Native American Tribes - Mock Disaster - Section 2: Disaster Strikes!


Just a heads up...past experience has taught me that I need to clear that these are MADE UP disasters and that there is no need to be fearful about the things we will be discussing.  I have had students in tears in the past when we discuss issues like these.  I have also had students that seem fine in class and I find out later from a parent that they are having nightmares at home and not sleeping.  A little explanation before hand goes a long way to ease the fears that are so near the surface for many tender students.
