State Univ. of New York, Oswego. Coll. at Oswego. Dept. of Industrial Arts and Technology.
The detailed guide was prepared to help industrial arts personnel direct their students in a unit on environmental education, specifically geared for the industrial arts laboratory, which employs the Maryland Plan for implementing the unit method of instruction. Guidelines for implementing the program are based on experience with pilot projects and cover such topics as: the program's application to students of various ability levels (and of both sexes); suggested materials; interdisciplinary cooperation, especially with librarians, and speech and English teachers; team teaching; and suggested six-, eight-, and ten-week timetables for the presentation of the program, are given. Implementation suggestions include: sample handouts; formats and suggested procedures; a sample unit sequence; suggested lessons; and a list of subtopics and related projects. A 75-page section of the guide contains articles, advertisements, sketches, drawings, and technical illustrations of forms of pollution abatement equipment, as well as sketches of possible student projects. There are 37 pages of resources enumerating: local resource contact people; industries and businesses with answers to environmental problems; government agencies; State water pollution control agencies; publications; booklets and pamphlets; films and filmstrips; selected books; and aids and devices. A 10-page glossary of environmental terms is also included. (JR)
