Man and Environment. Revised Curriculum.
Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL.
An adisciplinary, general education course for students of community colleges is outlined in this document. The one-year course was developed during two workshops, attended by representatives from community colleges throughout the country. The course is structured in modules to allow for flexibility in the sequencing of course content, and to facilitate interchange of instructional plans and materials. There are 32 modules in all. Each module outline provides general and specific objectives, and subunit topics. In addition to the more traditional environmental topics, subjects covered by these modules include: 1) the nature of man; 2) value systems--ecological priorities; 3) belief systems; 4) the myths of technology; 5) impact of political systems; and 6) impact of economic systems. A study guide to accompany the course will be available in March 1972. Miami Dade is planning to offer the course for college credit over open circuit television. (A related document is SO 001 888).
