  8. Teaching Risk Studies

    24 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Berube

    Risk studies needs to be taught to all students. While not necessitating a stand-alone status in educational settings prior to post-secondary education, it might behoove to find creative ways to add components of risk studies to K-12 curriculum. This lecture will examine some of the challenges...
