A Multi-Graded Conservation Education Summer School Model.
Novato Unified School District, CA.
Due to the excitement and enthusiasm shown by teachers, students, and community members participating in a summer school program, the Novato Unified School District, California, has compiled this sourcebook to guide others in developing a similar program. In 1969 and 1970 the school district established a multi-graded conservation education summer school program for a six-week period, involving seven teachers and 180 students in grades four through eleven. One of its outstanding features was the use of local environmental studies and community action projects which supplied both relevance to the program and continuing ideas and projects for the following school year. Within the guide, information is recorded on: (1) how to get a program started, (2) preplanning procedures, (3) publicizing the program, (4) examples of the daily program, (5) projects and activities, and (6) evaluation procedures. Appended material includes sources for information and materials, supply lists, and a student-developed consumer handbook. (BL)
