In 2014, the city of Flint, Michigan changed the source of its drinking water. The ramifications of this decision continue to this day.

Thousands of residents were exposed to lead-contaminated drinking water. The people in charge at the State and Federal level denied that a problem existed. It took the heroic efforts of Flint residents, physicians, and Prof. Marc Edwards of Virginia Tech University to bring the problem to light.

NOVA: Poisoned Water is a disturbing and high-interest video that documents Flint's lead-tainted water. It is a story of criminal negligence, obfuscation, and the elevation of money over human life and dignity.

The zip file download contains a two-sided video worksheet consisting of 45 multiple choice question, along with an answer key. Files are provided in both PDF and MS Word format. You will need to obtain a DVD of the video, or use the PBS Internet site. The video is also available on Amazon streaming. I have also included a QTI file of the worksheet questions that can be imported into an LMS such as Canvas (which can be ideal for distance learning).

A Google Forms self-grading quiz for this worksheet is available here.
