Project Q. U. E. S. T. (Quality Urban Environmental Studies Training). An Environmental Studies Curriculum for High School.
Brockton Public Schools, MA.
This interdisciplinary environmental education curriculum guide provides a series of environmental encounters for high school students. The purpose of the encounters is to develop an awareness and understanding of community environmental problems. The guide utilizes math, science and social studies in the study of urban environmental problems. Although the guide focuses on a specific community, the urban problems that are explored are common to most communities. The guide is divided into six cycles, each containing math, science and social studies activities. Each cycle is designed to be covered in seven days, the first six devoted to teaching and the seventh for testing. The cycles contain objectives and lessons which utilize math, science, and social studies; some cycles contain tests and bibliographical materials. The lessons reinforce the lesson objectives, and include completion time, equipment lists, location, and procedure. The lessons within the guide make use of such activities as mapping and measuring, discussion, and sample analysis. (TK)
