Peters, Richard O.
This one semester, ecology-oriented, eleventh or twelfth grade elective course exposes students to the problems of environmental degradation and makes them aware of man's attempts to remedy crisis situations. The curriculum guide is divided into three major topics, each comprised of several subtopics which include content, objectives, and suggested materials. Topic I, "Man's Record on the Earth," examines the sub-topics of Topic II, "The Population Problem," studies the distribution of the world's people, dynamics of population growth, and the effects of population patterns on the environment. Topic III, "Economics, Politics, and Conservation," explores the utilization and degradation of our natural resources. (Author/DE)
