The American and His Environment--A Social Sciences Course. Project Reports, Volume 2, The Rachel Carson Project.
Tanner, R. Thomas
This document is the second of seven volumes included in the Rachel Carson Project. The project attempts to introduce environmental 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 the social science area by emphasizing environment through Stuart Udall's THE QUIET CRISIS. The unit concludes with a study of participatory democracy in contemporary America with specific conservation organizations as examples. The volume includes THE QUIET CRISIS unit; suggested methods of instruction including games, contemporary music, and projects; a study of conservation organizations; a discussion on the meaning of "environmental backlash"; and examples of students' ideas solicited from an assignment regarding a land ethic for the future.
