Environmental Education CBRU Resource Manual.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.; New Jersey State Council for Environmental Education, Upper Montclair.
This environmental education resource manual deals with the computer based resource unit (CBRU) program available to New Jersey school teachers. The program is designed to unburden the teacher in planning classroom and out-of-school learning experiences based upon specific learner objectives for many grade levels and learning variables. Each resource unit provides objectives, content, activities, measuring devices and a comprehensive list of supplementary curriculum materials. This manual provides instructions for teachers who wish to obtain resource units from the computer center; units are in the form of a computer print-out. Steps for planning and completing the necessary forms are discussed. The possible units, including Population, Natural Resources, Pollution, Wetlands, and Primary Ecology, are briefly summarized. Specific objectives, mental age range, grade level, and instructional variables are included with each summary. The teacher may choose up to five objectives, which will be met in the unit she wishes to obtain. The objectives, mental age, and grade level, once identified are placed on the request form. The instructional variables, allowing the teacher to choose individual study areas for selected students, are also coded on the form. Forms are sent to the computer center. (Author/TK)
