The Farkleberry Cookbook in Environmental Education. An Activity Guide for Creative Teachers.
Fulton, William L., Ed.
This interdisciplinary environmental education guide, developed by teachers, focuses on the creative teacher, presenting him/her an approach for involving all types of students in junior and senior high schools in activities which would cause them to evaluate values and give them an opportunity to express their own thoughts. The guide includes six topics: problem solving, solid waste, energy, population, awareness, and the Farkleberry Question. Problem solving includes land use, politics, and prescriptive thinking. Solid waste examines family garbage, methods of solid waste disposal and includes the garbage game, and supportive materials; role playing, data collection, and observation are used. Energy considers such topics as energy conservation, gasoline consumption, economic costs, and utility management. Population focuses on crowding space, limited resources, population growth, and solutions; a population game is included. Awareness aims to help the student become emotionally involved with his environment; included are field trips, creative writing activities, and discussion topics. The Farkleberry Question is a simulation game which involves an environmental hearing on a project and its environmental impact. (TK)
