A Plan and Design for Natural Resources Education.
Southern, Beverly H.
With the aim of revitalizing conservation education, a conceptual framework for natural resource education was constructed, and a procedure established for integrating this curriculum with existing courses of study in the elementary school. A basic theme was chosen, expressed as "man + natural resources = survival + development." Twelve broad understandings which contribute to this theme were identified, each serving as a focus for many concepts. Concepts and broad understandings were organized into a hierarchical structure. An integrated program was developed by identifying relevant concepts and materials in existing science and social studies courses, and building these into a sequence giving spiral concept development. Suggested learning experiences were included. This report reviews the literature on Conservation and Environmental Education and on Attitude Education. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. [Not available in hardcopy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (EB)
