Man and Nature--A Literature Course. Project Reports, Volume 1, The Rachel Carson Project.
Tanner, R. Thomas
This document is the first of seven volumes included in the Rachel Carson Project. The project attempts to introduce environmental education lessons and units into existing courses of study within a high school rather than to implement environmental education through the introduction of new courses. This volume focuses on English literature by emphasizing the environment through Edward Abbey's DESERT SOLITAIRE. The unit concludes with examples of student reactions to the thoughts presented that specifically related to environmental ethics. The volume includes an introduction to the teacher; the DESERT SOLITAIRE unit; related poetry, essays, stories, contemporary music, and films; suggested appropriate field trips; an annotated bibliography of books about wildlife; and a summation by the teacher who tried the course.
