Teacher's Guide to Modules 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the Process Modules for Investigating Environmental Problems.
Hungerford, Harold R.; Litherland, Ralph A.
This manual was developed to prepare middle school students to investigate environmental problems using primary or secondary sources of information. The modular design attempts to teach students process skills of research. These skills are interdisciplinary, including science, social studies and language arts skills such as written communication, clarifying values, conducting surveys, and library reference work. The first four modules are highly structured, listing behavioral objectives and teaching suggestions; the fifth module is unstructured and self-paced for individual student research. The modular design is based on a hierarchy of process development resulting in autonomous student learners. (MR)
