Total Environment Education: An Open Design to Real Life Learning Experiences.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
Six global objectives--energy, earth resources, waste disposal, population, interdependence, and quality of life--are used as a framework in preparing this open design for environmental education, one which emphasizes behavioral change in the affective domain. To aid classroom teachers in achieving these goals, the guide is divided into five sections. Part 1 deals with the role of the teacher in the classroom situation and covers teaching strategies which recognize environmental education as future oriented, problem focused, interdisciplinary, student initiated, and community centered. In Part 2 each global objective is restated with specific supporting instructional objectives. For each specific objective, the grade level and subject areas into which it may be logically infused are suggested. Part 3 develops several model units for grades K-12 incorporating the instructional objectives, possible student activities, and teaching aids. Suggestions for implementation of an on-going environmental education program in terms of the responsibilities of the district are provided in Part 4. The final section gives names and addresses of agencies and individuals who can provide free and inexpensive materials to supplement the environmental education program. (BL)
