Operating Manual for Rachel Carson High. The Rachel Carson Project. Final Report.
Tanner, R. Thomas
This manual describes the Rachel Carson Project, an attempt to introduce environmental education lessons and units into the existing courses of study within a high school. The document provides a rationale for proceeding in this manner rather than implementing environmental education through the introduction of new courses. Included is a description and evaluation of the innovation process. The process as proposed centered around a core planning team of three teachers utilizing released time to develop materials that were then to be tried in their classes. This plan was modified to include informal, individual conferences between project staff and the entire teaching staff. The appendixes of this report include 22 descriptions, by teachers and others, of lessons, unit plans, and other project activities. (Author/MLB)
