Alternatives for Man and Environment, Revised Curriculum.
Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL.
A one-year general education course entitled "Man and Environment" has been developed at Miami-Dade Junior College, Florida. Basic framework for the course was built on the premise that an interdisciplinary, module-structured course represents one of the better approaches to planning environmental education curriculum. Material for the course may be found in "Man and Environment, Revised Curriculum", ED 056 930. Utilizing the modular form and topical areas of Man and Environment, this booklet, however, presents variations, or alternatives, for the modules. Twenty topical areas are covered: ecological imperatives; value systems--Ecological priorities; belief systems; the myths of technology; earth as an energy system; conservation of vital resources; population dynamics; urbanization: the living community; urban environment; water--supply, demand and pollution; air pollution; food and drug pollution; sound pollution; scenic pollution; wildlife and man; soil and man; intergroup tensions; impact of political systems; impact of economic systems; and media and the environment. Each section offers one to five alternatives, outlining an overview of the module, concepts to be developed, student objectives (learning activities), and a list of resource materials. Where appropriate, a chart is constructed indicating each concept, strategy for developing it, and suitable evaluation procedure. A bibliography is included. (BL)
