Watch the documentary Under the Dome available on YouTube here and reflect on the following questions (approx 300-500 words per question).
Quick background: This documentary was created by Chai Jing, a former journalist in Beijing who went on a long road of discovery to understand air pollution in China. After being published online in 2015 in China, the documentary was viewed more than 150 million times in four days. Internet censors then took down the documentary and it is no longer available on mainstream video platforms in China.
Note: This documentary is in Chinese with English (and Chinese) subtitles. If Chai speaks too quickly, you can adjust the play speed.

1. There are many obstacles to reducing air pollution in China, as discussed in Under the Dome. Identify at least three challenges discussed in the documentary. Which do you think is the most difficult to overcome? Why?
2.“Environmental injustice” occurs when different groups in society, usually those outside of institutions of power, are disproportionately affected by pollution. What is one example of environmental injustice in the film? Do some quick research on environmental injustice in a country other than China. How do the two countries compare in terms of who bears the burden of environmental pollution?
3.The reading for the environmental class, “Blunt force regulation and bureaucratic control: Understanding China’s war on pollution,” talks about a common way of enforcing environmental standards. How is this depicted in the film?
4.Under the Dome was censored off the Chinese internet after four days. In those four days, it was viewed more than 150 million times. Why do you think the film was so popular when it was first published?

Throughout the semester, we have discussed many global health problems that can

Throughout the semester, we have discussed many global health problems that can benefit from developing a behavioral change to positively impact health outcomes. For example, exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life reduces stunting. You will select a behavior change that will positively impact health outcomes and create an intervention/video to promote that behavior change.
Any app/program can be used to create the video, such as WeVideo, YouTube, etc. The video requirements are:
The video needs to be between 2-3 minutes in length.
The video has to be geared towards the target audience. For example, if I was targeting women in Ghana to exclusively breastfeed for six months, the messages, graphics, etc. should target that population.
The video has to cover the health behaviors/health outcomes.
Creativity is encouraged.
Sample video (This video is much longer but serves as an example of a student-created video): (will be sent to you)

What does The Text below suggest about the ways that endangered
languages can be protected? List any other ways you can think
of.
“Extract about how technology can help preserve threatened
languages
There is now cause for hope. While the dispersal of speech
communities across the globe has led to the demise of some
languages, technology popularized by globalization is playing an
equally important role in their revitalization. Through the internet and
mobile communications, people are reconnecting with fellow
speakers using digital tools to revive languages on the endangered
list …
Many speakers of endangered, poorly documented languages have
embraced new digital media with excitement. Speakers of previously
exclusively oral tongues are turning to the web as a virtual space for
languages to live on. Internet technology offers powerful ways for oral
traditions and cultural practices to survive, even thrive, among
increasingly mobile communities.”

What do Sources C, D and E suggest about the threats facing
languages in the world?
SOURCE C
Extract about some languages disappearing and how this could be
prevented
It is estimated that, if nothing is done, half of 6000 plus languages
spoken today will disappear by the end of this century. With the
disappearance of unwritten and undocumented languages, humanity
would lose not only a cultural wealth but also important ancestral
knowledge embedded, in particular, in indigenous languages.
However, this process is neither inevitable nor irreversible: wellplanned and implemented language policies can bolster the ongoing
efforts of speaker communities to maintain or revitalize their mother
tongues and pass them on to younger generations.
SOURCE D
Extract about the number of languages threatened in the world
After crunching the numbers using data culled from the Ethnologue,
an authoritative source for basic information about the world’s
languages, the researchers concluded that 25 percent of the world’s
languages are in immediate danger of disappearing forever.
SOURCE E
Extract about how technology can help preserve threatened
languages

communities across the globe has led to the demise of some
