Man and Environment, Study Guide, Volume One.
Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL.
Subject information, course instructions, and resource materials for a television course, "Man and Environment," are compiled in this student study guide. The interdisciplinary, modular course emphasizes the importance of such concerns as destruction of the environment and the declining quality of life while educating the public about the life-threatening problems that exist in both our physical and cultural environments. Solution of environmental problems, individually and collectively, is encouraged. The guide attempts to coordinate material from the basic textbook and TV documentaries used in the course. Fifteen modules which constitute the course are titled: environmental imperatives; nature of man; value systems--ecological imperatives; concepts of change; earth as an energy system; conservation of vital resources; population dynamics; urbanization--the living community; air pollution; water--supply, demand and pollution; scenic pollution; food and drug pollution; sound pollution; individual involvement; and responsibility to future generations. Each unit of study emphasizes seven points: (1) an overview of the module, (2) main ideas contained in the unit, (3) key terms, (4) things to look for in the text and TV documentary, (5) guiding questions to review the material and provide thought-provoking exercises, (6) involvement activities, and (7) an annotated bibliography/additional reading list.
