Environmental Studies [Instructional Kit].
American Geological Inst., Washington, DC.
Oriented toward an open approach to learning, this instructional kit contains suggestions, tactics, and materials which can be utilized in environmental studies. "Essence Two," a teacher orientation booklet, discusses the facets of openness which should be incorporated into the learning sequence. A set of 25 Assignment Cards suggests how to set up more effective and humane environments. They specify action to be taken, supplemental activities to this action, and important points to be brought out. Extension Cards serve as invitations to take any environmental study assignment at least one step further by relating it to people, places, processes, or content. A concentric circle chart is also included to illustrate how each additional action step leads to the solution of the original environmental problem. (BL)
