"Why Sample?" and other classroom exercises

These handwritten instructor's notes from a 1999 training session were prepared for a one-day course taught by Hunter College's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH). The notes outline various classroom exercises designed to engage students collaboratively, often encouraging them to think about the health and legal implications of various occupational health issues, including lead poisoning and air pollution. In addition to the notes is an annotated newspaper article handed out to the class. Its markup reflects the instructor's intended instruction and interpretation of the article.

Officially founded in 1990, the COEH spent decades dedicating itself to promoting community and workplace health throughout the New York area. It offered courses on topics ranging from asthma to ergonomics for unions, neighborhood groups, public employees, and others.
