Simulations, Concern Level, Grade Level, and Sex as Factors Influencing the Assignment of Importance to Environmental Concepts.
Boone, Janice Rae
This research was intended to examine whether or not treatment, sex, grade level, environmental concern level, and the interactions of these variables were important factors in the assignment of importance to environmental concept statements. In addition, the study was intended to determine whether or not the pattern of responses of junior high school students responding to a listing of environmental concepts paralleled the responses of an environmentally concerned adult population. The responses of subjects receiving treatment including the use of simulations and not including the use of simulations were also compared with the responses of an environmentally concerned adult population. A revised form of the environmental management concepts listing devised by Roth (1970) was used. The pattern of responses of junior high school students to environmental concept statements was observed to be similar to that of an environmentally concerned adult population. In addition, subjects treated with an instructional program in ecology/environmental management which included the use of simulations assigned higher values to the environmental concept statements than did those who received no instruction and those who received instruction without simulation.
