The Earth--And Nothing More.
Wheatley, John H.; Coon, Herbert L.
This 13-minute slide/tape presentation provides a look at the broad areas included in environmental education and suggests how teacher, student, and community groups can become involved in this area. Through this presentation man is made to realize his interdependence upon his bio-physical environment and how his own socio-cultural heritage and attitudes affect his response to that environment. Because the environment is constantly changing, organisms (including man) must adapt to these changes; man must be made aware of how he brings about many of these changes and of the necessity for careful management of natural resources. Through schooling and formal education and informal experiences in life, environmental education seeks to make each person more aware of his environment and to help him decide what he considers to be a satisfactory quality of life. Further activities and investigations are suggested in this presentation, and the availability of some materials and resource persons is noted. This is the first of three modules to introduce teachers and others to environmental education. (JW)
