Excerpt From the AIA Environmental Education Guidebook.
Concern for the deteriorating visual environment of our cities has prompted the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to make a concerted effort in educating the public to understand the nature of environmental design. Professional environmental designers and educators alike must promote environmental education as one way of achieving a satisfactory visual environment. This resource guide and bibliography attempts to provide a spectrum of viewpoints and makes no attempt to be all inclusive. It is designed primarily for teachers to assist them in educating students about environmental problems and to develop environmental awareness. Part One is an annotated bibliography of AIA projects and programs together with state and community projects. In addition to a short resume, the organization's name and address are noted as well as the appropriate grade level in which it may be used. An annotated bibliography of materials constitutes Part Two. Items include informational sources, instructional materials, kits of classroom materials, student resource books, activity resource books, teacher resource books, periodicals, films, and filmstrips. A project index and instructional materials index conclude the work. (BL)
