Environmental Learning Experiences: Socio-Cultural, 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 socio-cultural 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 seven units: Earth Thoughts, which examines various viewpoints of man's relationship to the environment; Quality of Life, which encourages the student to examine and evaluate his life goals; Environmental Inventory, which deals with the processes of research, observation, evaluation and organization; Environmental Management, which examines how one's community deals with concerns related to environmental management; Environmental Politics, which looks at environmental realities; Community Problems, which examines the functions of a community and its problems; and Futurism, which considers the stress of technological change. Each unit contains an introduction, stating the purpose and background, instructional objectives, experiences and references. The experiences of each unit are based on an objective which relates to the subject of the unit. Several activities are included in each experience. (TK)
