Primary Environmental Education Project: Teacher's Guide and Modules 1, 2, and 3.
Keach, Everett T., Jr.; Williams, Elmer D.
The teacher's guide accompanies nine instructional modules on environmental education which are designed as supplementary material for a primary level social studies program. The modules focus on teaching/learning activities that will build on understanding of the interrelationships between man and the land, water, and air. A major objective is to have the students deal realistically with the environment. Emphasis is given to the thinking processes of young children and the provision for many opportunities to engage in creative thinking. Each instructional module (1) lists all required materials; (2) provides 10-15 learning experiences organized with a statement of content, required material, behavioral objectives, focusing questions, and overview; and (3) suggests supplementary experiences. The teacher's guide describes and illustrates teaching strategies based on three cognitive tasks--concept formation, interpretation of data, and application of principles--and on productive-divergent thinking behaviors. Additional suggestions for using the modules, a rationale for involving the community, and a final evaluation instrument are also included. (Author/JH)
