Amidei, Rosemary E., Comp.
Selections from "The Science Teacher" magazine, appearing generally between January 1970 and May 1972, are offered in this compilation. Articles are divided into four sections: (1) A Point of View--personal perspectives on the nature and scope of the environmental problem, (2) Aspects of the Problem--relevant background material, (3) Environmental Education--course descriptions and curricula, (4) Student Activities--research projects and classroom ideas, and (5) Resources for Curriculum Guiding--book reviews and notes about other available materials. Subject content is wide-ranging, from ecology, energy and power, pollution and waste disposal, health, and natural resources to urbanization, population and food supply, transportation, architecture, industrialization, and technology. The 66 articles present a variety of viewpoints about causes and solutions to environmental situations and problems and illustrate a variety of approaches that science teachers at the secondary level are using to increase student awareness of the dilemmas and some of the choices that face society today.
