This guide, one of a series in the Quinmester Program, is intended to aid teachers in grades 10 through 12 as they prepare instructional programs dealing with current environmental crisis issues. The aim of this course of study is to help students understand political and economic ramifications of environmental problems and to motivate and provide them with the tools and the desire to become effective consumers and citizens. The guide is divided into: 1) a broad goals section; 2) a course content section which outlines units on ecological principles, environmental problems, economics of pollution, government and pollution, industry and pollution, pollution control, individual action, and future implications of environmental policy; 3) a learning activities section providing a picture of the main idea and specific behavioral objectives for a given set of learning activities; and, 4) a materials section. Appendix I consists of President Nixon's 1970 message on the environment; Appendix II enumerates environmental organizations. Related documents are SO 002 709 through SO 002 718. (Author/SJM)
