The Resource Recovery Education Program contains a variety of ideas, approaches, and learning aids for teaching about solid waste disposal at the secondary level. The program kit consists of a teacher's guide which provides an overview; separate teacher's guides for social studies, science, and industrial arts; a student booklet of readings; and a wall chart. Each of the components can be used independently of the other. The program is intended to introduce students to the problem of solid waste disposal and to involve them in doing something about it. Teaching strategies involve the student in community studies, research, and classroom discussion. The teacher's guide and the student book are available in this document. For other components of the program see the related documents listed in the descriptive note. The teacher's guide discusses the need for teaching about solid waste disposal and the approach to content used in the program. It also describes the six components of the program, the unit topics, and specific objectives and presents information on environmental careers and industrial resources. The student booklet contains a fictional story followed by a section on basic environmental principles, a list of organizations that make available free and low-cost materials, and a glossary of terms.
