Earth and Space Science. A Guide for Secondary Teachers.
Bolles, William H.; And Others
Designed for use in Pennsylvania secondary school science classes, this guide is intended to provide fundamental information in each of the various disciplines of the earth sciences. Some of the material contained in the guide is intended as background material for teachers. Five units are presented: The Earth, The Oceans, The Space Environment, The Atmosphere, and The Exploration of Space. The course is organized so that students proceed from the familiar, everyday world to the atmosphere and the space environment. Teaching geology in the fall takes advantage of weather conditions which permit field study. The purpose of the Earth and Space Science course is to encourage student behaviors which will be indicative of a broad understanding of man's physical environment of earth and space as well as an awareness of the consequences which could result from changes which man may effect.
