Preserving Man's Environment.
Pavoni, Joseph L.; And Others
This text focuses upon ecology and environmental science. It provides a thorough introduction to these areas, as well as the dimension of practical application to the classroom situation. The introductory section deals with the need to become aware of environmental problems, as well as presenting a brief summary of the succeeding chapters. The topics treated include the spaceship earth concept, ecological principles, water quality control, solid waste disposal, recycling and resource recovery, air quality control, noise pollution, environmental impact statements, and environmental law. There are two chapters devoted to each of these nine areas. The first chapter presents an extensive description of the environmental problem; the second chapter is a comprehensive teaching unit, broken down into seven sections. There is a brief introduction to each topic, stressing its importance, followed by the objectives of the unit. The content, activities, and experiments are given, and the units are divided into basic and advanced sections; the former appropriate for junior high school; the latter intended for senior high school and undergraduate college curricula. The evaluation area presents possible objective and essay questions. A detailed account of relevant sources, including books, periodicals, pamphlets, films, filmstrips, and games, is listed at the end of each unit. (BP)
