  • On Coal River Educator's Guide

    For educators interested in bringing ON COAL RIVER to the classroom, we have developed a free 59-page downloadable Educator’s Guide appropriate for middle school, high school, and early college classrooms. The Guide includes three lesson plans covering coal issues, civic engagement, and environmental science, and six downloadable video clips ranging from 2 to 15 minutes in length.
