Environmental Education in the Elementary School: Needs and Specifications. Working Paper No. 40.
Voelker, Alan M.
A description of needs and specifications for research and development activities in elementary school science are presented in this paper. Serving as a report from the Project on Prototypic Instructional Systems in Elementary Science, it considers the current and future needs of the child and the society of which he is a member. An overview of deficiencies in current practice is given, followed by a plan for development and related-research activities which will provide an environmental education for elementary school children. Several alternatives for developing materials in this area of environmental education are described and the strengths and weaknesses of each are indicated. A developmental sequence is detailed for one alternative - Ecological Readers. Throughout the report, the necessity of cooperative arrangements among school personnel, universities, governmental agencies and private industry is indicated. (Author/BL)
