The Status of Wisconsin High School Conservation Courses.
Engleson, David C.
A survey was conducted among senior high schools in Wisconsin which were reported to be offering courses in the conservation of natural resources. Seventy-two questionnaires were mailed to teachers identified by administrators as "conservation teachers". Questionnaires returned provided data on fifty-two teachers and 2,681 students. Data reported relate to the academic preparation of teachers, other courses taught by teachers, student ability levels, course organization in the schools, topics covered, reading materials used, use of field sites, field trips, and individual student field activities, and types of written assignments. The discussion of the data points up many inadequacies in the programs; and relevance to the students involved. Recommendations are made for improvement. (EB)
