Changing Waste in Changing Times: Solid Waste and Natural Resource Issues in Rural Alaska--A Teacher's Guide.
This guide was developed to present activities which inform the teacher and students of solid waste management problems that are becoming commonplace in villages. The lessons included present alternatives for taking care of the environment and contains methods to make not only school children more sensitive to environmental problems, but hopefully to inspire a grassroots program that will address local concerns. The first chapter incorporates and discusses the values and other aspects of the curriculum. The content areas presented can easily be integrated into many other areas of study including science, social studies, math, art and writing. Units presented include: Our Places and Traditions, Our Ecosystem--Earth, Waste, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Disposal, and Back to the Future. Contains a glossary and a list of 22 resources in Alaska and 12 references outside Alaska. (JRH)
