Environmental Education: Social Studies Sources and Approaches.
Henderson, Martha T.
The purpose of this paper is to alert elementary and secondary social studies teachers to certain new approaches to projects and materials in environmental education in the context of education in general. It is also a guide to the use of other available programs. Selective rather than complete, the paper offers a sampling of programs social studies teachers will find provocative. Categories covered include: 1) programs which encourage individual inquiry and allow the child to explore and question; 2) projects emphasizing interaction between man and his environment, and the cultural patterns controlling man's perception of his environment; 3) programs using the local environment or community as an integral part of the study program, offering the direct involvement needed for learning "through" the environment; and, 4) programs emphasizing "man in society" --the study of values, and related political, social, economic, legal and ethical ideas.
