Case Studies of Conservation "Battles." Project Reports, Volume 5, The Rachel Carson Project.
Tanner, R. Thomas
This document is the fifth of seven accompanying 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 curriculum rather than to implement environmental education through the introduction of new courses. This volume consists of two case studies of conservation organizations that were developed in an effort to help students gain understanding of ways the ordinary citizen can exercise his rights other than in the voting booth. Among the concepts covered during this developmental process were ecological concepts relating to ways man can alter an entire ecosystem, political concepts relating to understanding our political system and the decision-making processes, social-cultural concepts relating to ways our decisions reflect our values, and communication concepts demonstrating such subjective matters as "benefits" and "costs." Suggested questions for discussion and activities are included at the end of each case study. (MLB)
