must contact me before to plan to miss class Then we can arrange that you 1 attend another lab of mine listed below much preferred or 2 attend the lab of another TA with their permission However if you have not made an effort to make up a lab within two weeks of your missed lab then there will be no other opportunity to make up the lab If you consistently miss labs you will not receive a passing

student will choose a role that they will represent during the debate and prepare for the debate by reading articles posted on the websites listed below Feel free to use any other sources of information that you may find You should come to class prepared to speak for 5 minutes in favor of your position It would also be a good idea to prepare a rebuttal for possible questions or concerns other people might have about your position You should be prepared to cite the source give a reference of any facts numbers or statistics that you present during the debate or in your write up You will come to lab 8 section with a role in mind to give everyone enough time to prepare At the end of class after the debate all the students who played a specific role will work together to write a lpage position statement on drilling for oil This should be neatly handwritten and turned in at the end of class You will be graded on preparation and participation as well as the written statement Some question to consider while reading articles and preparing for the debate How much oil could be accessed by drilling Who has determined these estimates How much variation is there in the estimates that different groups have made What would be the cost of setting up drilling Consider costs both of setting up the infrastructure roads pipelines buildings drilling rigs and also the cost to people animals and plants that are currently living there What would be the footprint of the drilling How much space would the drilling operations occupy Who has made these estimates How much variation in estimates is there Does the footprint include all affected areas or just the physical construction sites What is the history of ANWR When and why was it established What makes ANWR unique What is the state of current oil drilling technology Who or what will benefit from drilling for oil and how will they benefit How many jobs will drilling create How long will these jobs last Possible Roles you will choose by week 8 lab US Senator from Alaska represents viewpoint of Alaskan citizens Oil Company Executive Sierra Club member Conservation Biologist Native Alaskan ie tribal peoples USGS
