In the second chapter, overall goals, objectives and competencies are presented along with a scope and sequence model and descriptions of the desired characteristics of programs and personnel. Chapter III describes the content of environmental education by concepts, subjects, and areas of concern. Chapter IV contains a set of instructional goals and attendant objectives which integrate the concepts and issues to provide an approach for classroom use. This chapter also includes a chart matching performance expectations with instructional objectives. Presented in the Appendix are definitions and discussions of environmental terms and issues, descriptions of resource materials, and a list of environment-related agencies and organizations.
