A Conversation with Doc Hendley 

 

Documentary Film Screening on Amarillo College campus
 
Panhandle PBS will offer a screening at AC in 2014 of a 2012 documentary that aired on PBS called Water Pressures. 
 
Water Pressures details the collaboration between the impoverished, water-scarce desert community in Rajasthan, India, and students at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., whose campus rests on one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world.  The story demonstrates how understanding, education and collaboration can lead to sustainable solutions, particularly between developing and developed countries.
 
For more on Water Pressures and accompanying resources, please visit their website.  
 
Multi- Disciplinary Lesson Plan for College Faculty
 
Panhandle PBS has worked with Susan Burgoon, Assistant Professor/Biological Sciences at AC, to develop a multi-disciplinary, college-level lesson connecting the Common Reader to the Water Pressures documentary.  Ms. Burgoon's  lesson is available here.
