Creator: Cudmore, Wynn
Publisher: Northwest Center for Sustainable Resources
Description: This module examines the production of genetically modified organisms as an environmental issue. Potential environmental impacts of genetically modified crops are emphasized, although human health concerns are also addressed. Our current state of knowledge and the viewpoints held by the various stakeholders are described in video and print resources. Students evaluate these viewpoints and formulate their own opinions based on an analysis of the issue. The module includes a detailed outline of a video production, student handouts, a key to the activity, a glossary and citations for print, video and web-based resources. The activity was developed for use in introductory courses in environmental science, general biology and natural resources and is designed to be completed in a single three-hour laboratory session.
