Environmental Studies: Five Miscellaneous Reports. Project Reports, Volume 7, The Rachel Carson Project.
Tanner, R. Thomas
This document is the last 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 curriculum rather than to implement environmental education through the introduction of new courses. Included in this volume is a report demonstrating methods by which environmental education can be implemented in a course on futuristics, an illustration of cooperation between a segment of the community (specifically a conservation organization) and a high school biology class which provides environmental learning experiences for both groups, an extracurricular project involving the study of a nearby creek as a potential spawning site for anadramous fishes, a proposal to utilize industrial waste material for projects in a high school industrial arts class, and a paper developed specifically for the project by an agricultural economist concerning the economics of environmental quality. Descriptions of the projects, lists of available resource materials, and suggested study outlines are among the contents of the various reports. (MLB)
