Career Education in the Environment. A Handbook.
Olympus Research Corp., Washington, DC.
This handbook designed for secondary school use in exploring environmental problems and solutions and providing information on existent and emerging career opportunities, will be useful to school administrators, curriculum planners, instructors, counselors, librarians, and students. Developed by a 10-member project group, the handbook is in three parts: (1) Career Education and the Environment--an overview which sketches the extent of, reasons, and solutions for our present environmental degradation, (2) Environmental Careers--a comprehensive report divided into categories of science and research, technology and education, technology implementation, and equipment operation, and (3) two environmental education curriculums--a 15-day self-contained curriculum unit on environmental awareness and pollution tested in the Salt Lake School District, complete with an outline, lesson plans, student readings, and an exam, and a semester length course which focuses on the physical world, natural resources, and social problems with environmental overtones. An annotated 61-page bibliography supplements these curriculums, and is divided into eight categories for easier use as a selective guide for all schools wishing to start or upgrade their holdings in environmental literature.
