Environmental Education Teacher's Guide, Senior High School. A Core Experience Study of the Maine Land Use Challenge.
Bennett, Dean B.; Willink, Wesley H.
This Environmental Education Teacher's Guide is designed for use with the Maine Land-Use Challenge, a mini-course designed for use in the secondary schools. The mini-course itself grew out of a day-long land-use conference in 1971, sponsored by the Allagash Institute, in the coastal town of Phippsburg, Maine. The conference was filmed and edited against the background of the Phippsburg peninsula, into a 30-minute sound and color film, MAINELAND, which serves as the basis for this unit of study. The major goal of this mini-course is to help students acquire an understanding of the need for land-use planning and to help them acquire the motivation and ability to participate in sound land-use decision making. The guide is divided into six parts: Land-Use Values Clarification; The History of Land-Use; A Community Land-Use Case Study (slide presentation); Simulation of a Community Land-Use Issue; Follow-up Considerations; and Selected Bibliography. The Appendices include: pre- and post-tests, MAINELAND film outline, a community attitude survey, and charts. (BT)
