Gibbs, Charlotte B.
This environment education curriculum guide focuses on the integration of environmental education into all phases of the home economics curriculum: textiles, clothing, foods, nutrition, health, grooming, human development, home management, consumer education, housing, lifestyles, and occupations related to home economics. The guide is divided into six parts. Part I, Background and Philosophy, introduces the idea and need for environmental home economics. Part II, Curriculum Ideas, presents ideas to help the teacher integrate environmental education into the curriculum to facilitate the needs of the students and the situation. Organizational Helps, Part III, presents ideas for involving students, community, and organizations in environmental home economics planning and projects. Part IV presents sample environmental home economics units. Each unit contains objectives, an outline based on Alaska Guidelines for Home Economics, behavioral objectives and corresponding learning experiences. Guidelines to Citizen Action, Part V, contains a list of positive environmental actions that students can apply to daily life. Part VI, the Appendix, includes teaching techniques such as simulation games, concept charts, demonstrations, and resource materials. (TK)
