A Curriculum Activities Guide to Solid Wastes and Environmental Studies, Volume 4.
Hershey, John T., Ed.; And Others
This document, developed for elementary and secondary students, is one of a series emphasizing student-oriented problem solving related to environmental matters. It is designed to guide others in initiating, continuing, or expanding their environmental education program. Volume 4 is intended for use by cadre who have used similar materials at a training workshop and is organized in two sections: Chapter 1 on awareness activities and Chapter 2 on transitional activities. Awareness activities are designed to orient students toward a concern for environmental problems and a realization that the problems are appropriate subjects for study. Process skills dealt with at the awareness level include observation of solid waste sources and components, categorizing of solid waste problems, comparisons, measurement, inferring, and questioning. Transitional activities are directed toward real community concerns and involve the students in predicting, data collection, data processing, data evaluation, and formulation of hypotheses. Each activity identifies the situation and notes open-ended questions, equipment needed, procedure, past studies, limitations, and a bibliography. A bibliography and glossary are appended. (BT)
