Paden, Mary, Ed.
These lesson plans are designed for secondary students but also can be used at the middle school and college levels. The lessons focus on the environment and development, both globally and locally. Each unit contains objectives, a lesson plan, student handouts, overhead transparency masters, student enrichment activities, suggestions for further reading, and suggested audio-visual resources. The units are interdisciplinary in nature. The three units in this guide include: (1) "Car Trouble"; (2) "Women, Equity, and Sustainable Development"; and (3) "Two Giants: India and China." Appendices provide further teaching resources and the Goals 2000 National Performance Standards for Grade 12 for civics and government, geography, history, mathematics, and science. (EH)
