A Conceptual Scheme for Population-Environment Studies. Experimental Edition Revised.
Stegner, Robert W.; Arnsdorf, Val E.
This publication contains a K-12 comprehensive conceptual scheme for population-environment education to be utilized as a framework in which existing courses of study can continue to be used and to which new materials can be adopted. The development of the basic concept, Man is Part of a Natural System the Earth, and is Ultimately Subject to the Limit of the System, depends partly on studies of the properties and interactions of water, air, and the physical earth. The scheme has been organized in two parts, first a general development, and then a more detailed expansion to facilitate the assignment of responsibility for concept attainment among the teachers. It is recommended that the scheme serve as a guide for a school-wide effort. It could serve as a syllabus for a discrete course in population-environment studies. (EB)
