Benjamin, Felice; And Others
This unit contains a number of learning activities which can be incorporated into junior-high environmental education classes. Objectives are to make students aware of local environmental problems and clarify their personal values about environmental issues. Along with general kinds of land-use problems and historical overviews, the unit focuses specifically on four major land-use issues in Pinellas County, Florida, including beach development and natural disasters; land-use and planned zoning; transportation; and water supplies, distribution, and wastes. Each unit of the guide contains appropriate teacher information, such as materials needed, special notes to the teacher, activities, objectives, skills, generalizations, and guidelines. Although focused on Florida, the unit serves as a good model that can be easily adapted in other regions. Teachers can substitute maps, graphs, and other kinds of local information using the Pinellas County model as an example. (JR)
