Proposed Learning Objectives for Environmental Education.
This document lists proposed environmental concepts for the high school education level of achievement. These concepts were developed by the Federal Interagency Committee on Education (FICE) for consideration by students, teachers, and others in the education community. These objectives are intended to cover the learning needed by an individual to understand and to help encourage Federal activities related to environmental quality. The agencies contributing to this list were: The Environmental Protection Agency, the National Park Service, the Forest Service, the Office of Education, the Office of Sea Grants in the Department of Commerce, the National Science Foundation, the Bureau of Land Management, the Energy Research and Development Administration, and the Council on Environmental Quality. The list of learning objectives is designed to cover only the content and not values and skills related to the environment. The list of objectives is organized around three major categories: (1) fundamentals of earth's environment, (2) humans as a part of earth's ecosystems, and (3) harmonizing human needs with ecosystem limits. This list is proposed as a guide for textbook writers, curriculum supervisors, and other educators. (BT)
