TETE: Total Education in the Total Environment.
Eblen, William R.
The Hudson River Museum's Environmental Arts and Science Division has published this booklet describing their model educational program, "TETE: Total Education in the Total Environment," a multidisciplinary approach to environmental education utilizing existing curricula. For conducting the program model communities strategically located along the Hudson River are selected to illustrate the concept of the total environment, stress that every community has a wealth of human resources that can be used in developing an understanding of the ecology of man, and emphasize that local examples provide the most relevant education for all ages. Administrative organization, program development and implementation are explained together with the unique aspects of the total environment approach. Detailed are the underlying concepts, community and curriculum components, illustrations of how the curriculum components may be applied in the classroom, and some of the techniques used in this approach--unifying questions, on-site investigation, common base maps, and community resources. Several diagrams and pictures further depict the program activities. (BL)
