Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Newsletter, Volume 24 Number 4. This Fragile Earth.
"This Fragile Earth" is the theme portrayed in this newsletter from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Since we are being faced with the problem of survival because of the deterioration of the environment, it is suggested that the fragile quality of the environment can serve as a means of impressing upon young people their responsibilities for stewardship of their environment. To this end, several articles address themselves to various facets of the whole topic of environmental education and the spirit of stewardship. "Transforming Man's Attitude Toward the World" is the lead article by Sen. Gaylord Nelson, relating several ramifications of the Environmental Education Act of 1970. Other writings deal with science, social studies, aesthetics, and math in the environment and in environmental education. Curriculum development is explored in two articles, "Environmental Education: An Action Model," and "Improving Wisconsin High School Conservation Courses." One additional story characterizes a school site for environmental education at the Forest Park Outdoor Education Center, Franklin, Wisconsin. Miscellaneous items of local interest complete the newsletter. (BL)
