numbers just like I wrote. Have a great day!
I went to the Lamar
library E-reserve tab to use the password I stated in order to bring up the

Essay Topic: Disaster and hazard
management in terms of risk and risk perception in the public?
This folder contains the
SafeAssign submission source for submitting your Module 1 reflections essay.
The point behind the reflections
essay is to reflect on what the readings mean in the bigger picture. This is
not a simple analysis or listing of what the authors say. You should reflect on
the weekly objectives of assessing the need to understand risk and risk
attitudes in the public in an effort to evaluate the need for understanding
risk and risk perception for disaster and hazard management (course objective
1)
Every reading from Module 1
should be referenced to properly complete this essay.
The purpose is to provide a
thoughtful critical analysis of the contribution that the readings provide
rather than simply what the authors say. You should be providing citations that
provide supporting evidence to your analysis. In other words, this is not about
your opinion or your original thought. Rather your analysis of the contribution
should be about how the readings contribute to what we know as
well as how we know what we know. You should have citations in every
paragraph to to support your analysis.
You should refer to your syllabus
for more information.
