Environmental Education - A Problem Approach. Final Report.
Presnell, Richard W.
The envrionmental education project, "A Problem Approach," was designed to involve University faculty and community leaders in a number of goals. They attempted to produce a series of audio-taped slide presentations designed to develop a working level of environmental literacy in the project participants and in those people who subsequently utilize the materials in community group meetings and classrooms. Emphasized in each presentation was the importance of citizens in examining alternative solutions to environmental problems, as well as their responsibility to be concerned with environmental problems and to work cooperatively toward developing rational solutions to current and future problems. The topics defined for use were Air Quality; Communication, Noise, and Life Quality; Ecological Concepts; Energy; Solid Waste Management; Transportation and Land Use; and Water Quality. Most of the goals were achieved with varying degrees of success, though four of the slide presentations were never completed. (Author/MA)
