Ecology and Human Values.
"Ecology and Human Values" is an interdisciplinary course designed for senior year high school students in social studies and/or science. Its main thrust is the investigation of human values as they relate to the environment, although rooted in the natural sciences as a means of understanding the complexities inherent in the environment. Use is made of the case study approach to environmental issues (controversial questions) together with participatory research in the community. Multi-text, small group instruction, individual projects, and simulation techniques are also incorporated to develop an understanding and a corresponding value and behavior change in the inter-relationship of man to his biophysical and sociocultural environment. The course is outlined in eight units: (1) An Introduction To Crisis, (2) Ecology, (3) The Nature of Man, (4) Historical Perspective of Ecology, (5) Population, (6) Science-Technology, (7) Concerns Caused by Science-Technology, and (8) What is the Proper Role of the Scientist, Citizen, Industrialist, and Administrator? Each unit indicates the subtopics to be covered, objectives, generalizations, methodology, culminating activities, evaluation, resources, and supplementary information where appropriate. (BL)
