A Curriculum Guide for Ninth Grade in Environmental Science. First Rough Draft.
McKenna, Harold J.
This curriculum guide is a rough draft for a suggested course of study in environmental science. This draft was developed by science teachers from the Greater New York area and was designed for the ninth grade, but could be used for any grade level with modifications. This course of study suggests an interdisciplinary approach to studying the environment and has subheadings for teachers to use in developing their daily lesson plans. There are four basic units in the outline: Population, Energy, Pesticides, and Pollution. These units are further subdivided into: Topic, Understandings and Concepts, Activities, and Supplementary Information. As modification of this guide continues, it is hoped that specific laboratory and field modules might be incorporated along with a list of visual aids available in the various topics. (Author/BT)
