Environmental Education Activities Manual, Book 1: Concerning Spaceship Earth.
Stapp, William B., Ed.; Cox, Dorothy A., Ed.
This book is the first part of a series of six books designed to provide valuable resources to teachers and curriculum specialists as they construct viable environmental education programs for their students. The material in this manual was produced in response to student and teacher demand for material to support the environmental education model described in Section II of this book. The activities in the manual were developed largely in writing workshops by teachers familiar with the environmental education model. Most of the activities were used in the classroom and modified according to student teacher response. Book 1 provides the environmental education philosophy and model. Also included are guidelines for implementing the environmental education model and lists of environmental education resource materials. The resource materials include: sources of prepared environmental education curriculum materials for teachers, information agencies and organizations, film sources, periodicals, publishing, bibliography of instructional materials, environmental monitoring kits, games and simulations, series of prepared catalogues and bibliographies, and sources of audiovisual materials.
