K-12 Workshop: Water and the City
Thursday, February 20, 2014
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM
The UCLA History-Geography Project and the Asia Institute announce a K-12 Scholar-Teacher Workshop on
Water and the City
This program will include a talk with specific reference to Asia by Dr. Nick Menzies, Executive Director of the Asia Institute. Dr. Menzies, a specialist in Natural Resource management, will cover some general concepts about the topic of water and urbanization such as city siting and will also speak to a city's ecological footprint, which is, of course, much wider than its boundaries. This special workshop for K-12 teachers stems from a new interdisciplinary course at UCLA on "Water and City in Asia," developed with support from the Urban Humanities program at UCLA. The talk will be followed by questions and discussion, and a unit on lesson applications. This is a topic that spans almost all grade levels and is relevant to Science and Environmental Studies as well as Humanities and Social Sciences.
