    These ideas are directed for the Environmental Science class, which will allow the independent study student some other resources from the text.
    1.See news footage of natural disasters with explanations from the experts on the cause and effects of the event.
    2. Find new techniques on recycling, reducing and reusing showing how people are making a difference.
    3. Observe how different countries are addressing similar environmental issues.
    4. NBC Learn (not utube, but) has years of footage of historic events and scientific discoveries that can explain a concept
    5. NOVA (not utube, but) is a font of information on just about anything.
    6. The movie “An Inconvenient Truth” can be viewed as an assignment.
    7. Compare contrasting opinions regarding a disputed topic
    8. Develop a logical critique of an argument or point of discussion. What is the opinion presented? Is it a valid argument?
    9. Demonstrations on the source or origin of products or how are they made?
    10. Listen to State of the Union Addresses or Political Debates to see what the politicians think that the people want to hear in what time. What are the issues of any particular area or time?

    4. Medical footage of xrays or MRIs allow students to view images with comments from the specialist reading the film
    5. School house rock videos are fun
    6. Dissections and other laboratory procedures can be observed when lab activity is not practical.
    7. Pathology and histology studies with real images instead of drawings
    8. Interviews with scientists on their work and discoveries.
    9. Clever songs and mnemonics for learning material.

    The explanations of employment opportunities can certainly be used in the business field. The interviews of work related interviews and life experiences enrich the learning process for students. It is a way of connecting education and the work world.
