Lesson overview: Students return to the presentation that they viewed in Activity M01, at the start of their study of wildland fire (E01_M01_VisitingWildlandFire.pptx). This time, they narrate the presentation themselves. Then they compare and contrast their current feelings about wildland fire with their earlier ones. Finally, they assess the difficulty of a fire manager’s job.
Goals: Reinforce students’ knowledge about wildland fire behavior, effects, and management. Demonstrate to students how much they have learned. Demonstrate that learning can affect feelings, and that feelings about a complex issue can change over time.
