Environmental-Ecological Education: A Bibliography of Fiction, Nonfiction, and Textbooks for Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Watt, Lois B., Comp.; Thomas, Myra H., Comp.
This bibliography of juvenile literature, textbooks, and professional resources for teachers is based on acquisitions received between January 1st 1969 and May 25 1971 by the Educational Materials Center of the National Center for Educational Communication. The books annotated within have not been evaluated, however, they have been selected on the basis of three criteria: 1) publication during this period; 2) critical reception or favorable review by at least two professional journals; and, 3) ecological content. The nonfiction juvenile titles in the first two sections divide around three themes: 1) the problems endangered species of animals and plants, overpopulation, hunger, pollution; 2) the natural resources available and their utilization as the basis of the solution of the problems; and, 3) surveys of what has been done in recent years to repair the ecological damage. Biographies, animal stories, and conservation and ecology picture books are included in the second section. The next part describes fifteen juvenile fiction books about encounters between animals and people, imagined or fictional, but relevant to everyday happenings; some are fantastic in nature. Science and social studies texts are listed in the fourth section with teacher resources in the fifth. The review sources, and author and title indices are appended. (Author/SBE)
