An Environmental Experience. Man: Steward of His Environment.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Environmental awareness experiences described in this guide are designed to serve as models or suggestions for teachers conducting activities directed toward environmental improvement. "Man: Steward of His Environment" is the theme of the 14 experiences utilizing behavior profiles, audio-visual exhibits, area studies, service projects, mass communications, program planning, surveys, campaigns, and moratoriums. Although the experiences suggest a use by school groups or by classes, they are not keyed to the instructional program per se. However, implications for classroom followup activities and continuing commitments are explicit. They are not designated as K-6 or 7-12 experiences since the ideas expressed can be adapted suitably for all levels. An annotated film list, directory of film distributors, and additional ideas for local environmental projects are appended. The publication's aim was to stimulate preparations for Conservation Day programs and was written by the Environmental Task Force at the request of the New York State Commissioner of Education. (BL)
