Hurricane Katrina DME (Tropical Storms)

Hurricane Katrina DME (Tropical Storms)

I have just started teaching tropical storms and I wanted to do a DME with my students. I couldn't find any good resources out there so I have created one myself based on Hurricane Katrina. The lesson is called "Can you save New Orleans from Katrina?". Many of you will have seen the DME based on the Montserrat eruption. I have used the basis for that DME to create this lesson. It involves a series of events being revealed on the board. In group's of 4 they must make decisions about the management of New Orleans for an impending disaster (Katrina). They are given 3 options and must write down the information about the event as well as which decision they make. Students are given an A3 map of the Gulf of Mexico and must track the tropical storm and annotate as much information as possible. Students are also given a flood map of New Orleans; information appears about flooding in New Orleans due to the storm surge, which students must add to the map and complete the key. At the end of the lesson, 10 points are given for every decision they get correct (in line with what really happened). The correct decision (worth 10 points) can be found in italics below the corresponding event on the word document. 20 bonus points are available for the accuracy of the two maps, which is up to the teacher to award whilst students answer the plenary questions (10 points maximum per map). I think this is a really nice lesson. It worked very well with my students and got them engaged in what is a very challenging topic. The idea is that students make better decisions than the government officials made and make comparisons between their own plan and what really happened. I have spent hours making the resources and hope you like them. All information and data is accurate as I spent a lot of time researching and corresponding the correct response to the accurate time period.
