Ekistics; A Handbook for Curriculum Development in Conservation and Environmental Education.
Brandwein, Paul F.; And Others
Conceptual frameworks for instructional K-12 programs in conservation and environmental education are provided in this draft curriculum guide. The objective is to help students understand cultural and social as well as physical interaction between man and his environment, interaction that, in fact, makes man interdependent with, and binds him to his environment. Sequential work units are based on cognitive-affective schemes in an interdisciplinary approach involving traditional subject areas of science, health, social sciences, arts, humanities, and also stressing other subject areas. Although school is the catalyst for environmental education concepts and values, the learning framework extends into the community, state, nation, and world. The draft is divided into three major chapters. In chapter one, statements of rationale, several ekistical situations, and an analyzed standard problem are presented. Chapter two gives conceptual outlines, including concept explications, and performance objectives. A discussion of planned instruction and teaching methods is provided in Chapter III. (Author/SJM)
