This prototypic curriculum is designed to develop awareness of the challenges man faces in his crowded communities to insure clean water, pest control, waste removal, safe food handling and adequate community health facilities. It distinguishes between the prevention of future environmental abuse and compensation for past abuses. Both the gaining of factual knowledge and the elicitation of a personal commitment by the pupil for working against environmental threats are among the purposes of the curriculum. The format is divided as follows: (1) major understandings and fundamental concepts, (2) suggested teaching aids and learning activities, and (3) supplementary information for teachers. (Author/TL)
