e-Mission: Operation Montserrat DLESE Reviewed Collection
This team-based, interactive educational experience aims to engage students in real-world problem solving. The volcano on the normally tranquil island of Montserrat has come to life. As flaming pebbles and lava begin their devastation, emergency response teams learn that a hurricane is approaching. Using real-time hurricane and seismic data, teams of student specialists assist Mission Control, by videoconference or over the Internet, in saving the residents from certain destruction. The Mission package includes teacher training workshops, lesson plans, assessment materials and online support. It was produced by the Challenger Learning Center at Wheeling Jesuit University.
