Environmental Quality and the Citizen. A Teaching Guide for Adult Education Courses Related to the Environment.
Clausen, Bernard L.; Iverson, Ross L.
This guide was written to aid the organization of an adult education course on the environment. Each of the ten sessions in the guide is an independent unit--to be used as such or to be interchanged with other sessions. Topics or units are titled: Environmental Quality--Everyone's Responsibility; Land and Space Resources; Population Stress and Its Implication; Energy Needs of Society; Production--Consumption Patterns; Perspective on Pollution; Food and Fiber; Water Resource Management for All; Cultural and Recreational Needs; and Environmental Quality for You. Each unit is composed of four parts: (1) objectives--behavioral objectives developed to give direction to the session, (2) background information--a brief textual statement designed as a point of departure for classroom presentations and discussions, (3) teaching activity--a different type of teaching technique for each session, designed to involve the class in discussion of environmental areas of concern and to seek possible solutions, and (4) references. In addition, a list of general course objectives and a bibliography related to natural resources and environment are provided. (BL)
