Our Man-Made Environment. A Collection of Experiences, Resources and Suggested Activities.
Group for Environmental Education, Philadelphia, PA.
This collection of activities, experiences, and resources focuses on the man-made environment. The activities and resources were compiled to facilitate a program based upon the teacher's and student's own living experiences in their own environment. The goals of the program are to develop the individual's awareness of his environment and subsequently his understanding of it and to instill confidence in his ability to judge the environment, hence enabling him to control and change it. An introduction, suggested activities, a collection of teaching experiences, an introductory list of resources, and a recommended library are included. The introduction contains a description of the program, concepts and implementation strategies. The activities are directed toward the discovery of the world as a purpose environment and include measuring, photography, and discussion. The collection of experiences is ideas and activities which evolved while implementing the program. A list of resources, including audio-visual aids, maps, newspapers, periodicals and books, plus a recommended library, complete the booklet. (Author/TK)
