An Air Pollution Resource Manual for Junior High School and High School Teachers.
Nurnberger, Robert G.
This manual was conceived and developed by a team of teachers and subject matter experts from diverse areas and planned as a resource for teachers at the middle school and high school levels who are concerned with air pollution. Not intended as a syllabus or student text, it offers information and sample exercises which may be incorporated into a variety of subject areas together with data, charts, and illustrations which may be useful in classroom situations. The manual is essentially in four sections: (1) basic background in the scientific and societal origins of the problem of air pollution (scientific--composition and structure of the atmosphere, thermal energy and its effects, physical processes, local topographic effects, effects of cities, and interacting atmospheric subsystems; societal--historical perspectives, system of relations among individuals, long-range consequences, change and adaptation, and impetus for solutions); (2) treatment of the nature and scope of man's activities which contribute to air pollution, including primary industries, process industries, transportation, service industries, governmental activities, community activities, and recreational activities; (3) sample exercises in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities; and (4) bibliography. Each section is treated comprehensively. (BL)
