Whilst they were away Cyclone Nargis hit Burma. It is their first Geography lesson after the cyclone devastated Southern Burma on 2 May 2008. This teacher in a medium sized non-government coeducational school in non-metropolitan Victoria is conducting a discussion about the disaster with her year 8 class before returning to their lesson on river landforms and processes of erosion, transportation and deposition.
