Encounter with the Northwest Environment: Natural and Urban.
Angell, Tony; And Others
This environmental education curriculum guide provides a framework for approaching and understanding both the urban and natural environment. The information presented in the guide is designed to meet the following educational objectives: to learn of interrelatedness and interdependencies of living organisms with one another and their physical environment; to develop an understanding of the distinct differences, limitations, and capacities of various environments; to know and understand the significance of the parts that compromise the whole of the city; to identify basic trade-offs arising from interaction with or use of one's environment; and to understand what agencies and laws regulate and constructively manage regional and urban environments. The guide is divided into two sections. Part One, the natural environment, deals with the location and selection of environmental learning sites based on the organizing features of the natural environment and the nature of man's interaction with the environment. Part Two provides a method for understanding the urban environment by breaking it down into its component parts. Both sections include background material and specific environmental learning sites in the Seattle (Washington) region. Maps are included. (TK)
