Recommendations for Integration:
This problem-based RWLO can be used to
help students understand, using real data, the need for careful
consideration and compromise in environmental decisionmaking. It
can be implemented in class where class discussion can reinforce
the difficulty in considering the numerous factors that affect
landfill site selection. It can also be assigned as an
outside-of-class assignment for individuals or teams.
County GIS sites cannot be backed up onto
the presentation computer and must be accessed on-line.
However, discussion of requirements and issues for landfill
siting can be done without the use of on-line resources.
Print out the instructor aids in the Procedure section for your
use and the Landfill
Site Selection Form and Grading Rubric
in the Content Material section of this web site and provide
sufficient copies to your learners/teams. At a minimum, a
copy of each of the materials used should be provided to each
group of students.
