An Approach to the Teaching of Environmental Science.
Greenwell, Robert; And Others
This guide is designed to assist educators in developing an environmental education program for use in the ninth and tenth grades. The program guidelines focus on the potential dropout, encouraging the student to continue his education, but also exposing him to environmental understandings that contribute to positive environmental action throughout one's life. The guide is structured around the following two objectives: the development of a contributing, self-sufficient, responsible student, and the development of an environmentally aware citizen. The ninth-grade program is divided into four sections--land, plants, water, and air. Each section contains behavioral objectives, a program design, and evaluation strategies which examine both cognitive and affective outcomes. Suggested activities are included. The tenth-grade program is also divided into four sections--Natural Resources, Societal Forces for a Better Environment, Environmental Problems, and Your Role in the Environment. Each section contains behavioral objectives. A bibliography including reference books for teacher and student use, information sources, filmstrips, and films concludes the guide. (TK)
