Environmental Learning Experiences: Bio-Physical, Junior High School.
Junglas, Mary R.; And Others
This environmental education curriculum guide was developed for teacher use at the junior high school level. Although the guide deals with the bio-physical aspects of the environment, it is designed to encourage an integration of the disciplines into an inter-disciplinary approach. The volume consists of a set of ideas, activities, and opinions which will help teachers and students generate a positive approach to the environment. The guide is divided into the following six units: Earth Thoughts, which deals with value clarification; Quality of Life, which examines the quality of environmental components; Environmental Inventory, which presents methods for conducting an environmental inventory and analysis; Environmental Management, which identifies procedures used to monitor, control, and change the environment; Community Problems, which suggests steps for investigating community environmental problems; and Futurism, an activity oriented unit, which involves students in creative thinking and problem solving. Each unit contains an introduction, stating the purpose and background, instructional objectives, experiences, and references. The experiences of each unit are based on objectives which relate to the subject of the unit. Several activities, which reflect and reinforce the objective, are included in each experience. (TK)
